I am trying to make these cat bookmarks Huh http://translate.google.com/translate?depth=1&hl=en&rurl=translate.google.com&sl=auto&tl=en&twu=1&u=http://vse-sama.ru/igrushki-suveniry/koty-zakladki.html and so far I have done them up to the tail (having made up my own instructions after Google translate has gone awry!) but I cannot figure out how to crochet the tail so it curls up into a spiral but remains flat. The only instructions I can find on the internet are how to crochet in the round, and so are no use in this case. Any help is gratefully received  Cheesy

If you are familiar with increases and decreases in the round, I would say that you need to decrease on the inside edge and increase a stitch or two per line of crochet.  So if your inside is 12 crochets long then your second round I would try 14 stitches and then 16 in the third line.  It's mostly trial and error though, as I'm sure you are already familiar with.  Just keep at it and good luck Smiley
