It’s very important to keep the symmetrics of the part: increases of three stitches should be strictly in the center. If necessary, correct it by different variations of the first and last single crochets: for example, it’s stated in the description to crochet (sc in the next 8 st….. sc in the next 8 st), and you need to move the beginning to the left, then crochet (sc in the next 9 st ……… sc in the next 7 st) or even (sc in the next 10 st ….. sc in the next 6 st). The total should be 16 sc, vary them as needed.

If the patch is too small, you can make it bigger by crocheting additional row of sc or hdc, making increases in the middle of the curve.

Make some contractions on the muzzle:
Take a sewing needle with thread and make a stitch at the right side between Rounds 11 and 12. Take the needle out at the left wing to hide the place of the contraction, contract a bit and fasten off. Make the same from the left to the right wing.
