Attach salmon yarn at one of the collar corners (see the picture below) and crochet a chain of desired length (about 60-65 ch). Then make a slip stitch in the 7th ch from hook. Fasten off and cut off the yarn. Make the second string in the same way.

7. Make the tail in the same way.
8. Put on the collar and tie a bow on the neck.
