Finished size

Using similar yarn and a 5mm (size H) crochet hook, the toy is approximately 14cm (5.5 inches) without antennas.

Supplies

1. Yarn: This example was crocheted with:

– Yarnart Dolce (micropolyester (velor), 100g = 120m/131 yards, Bulky, 7 wpi): color 761 – yellow, color 742 – black;

– YarnArt Jeans (acrylic 45%, cotton 55%, 50g = 165m/180 yards, Sport, 12 wpi): color 53 – black.

2. Crochet hook: 5 mm (size H) for plush yarn, 2,0-2.5 mm (size B) for cotton yarn, or in accordance with the yarn you use.

3. A small piece of contrast yarn or a stitch marker.

4. Fiberfill.

5. Thick needle.

6. One pair of 8mm black half-beads.

7. 20 cm of pink yarn to embroider the cheeks (optional).

8. Scissors, pins.

Notes

Work in continuous rounds when crocheting all parts of the body. Do not join or turn unless instructed otherwise in the pattern.

Use a stitch marker (or a piece of contrast yarn). Place it between the last and first stitch of each row and always move it up after working the last stitch.

When attaching parts, make sure to check for symmetry.

Change the color of the yarn when crocheting the last sc of the previous round. If something is not clear and/or you need help, please message me: lovenika.ua@gmail.com.

Cut the yarn, leaving a long tail. Using a needle, weave the tail through the front loop of each remaining stitch and pull tight to close. Secure with a knot and hide the end inside the toy.

Wings (make 2):

With light blue color:
1: 6sc in mr (6)
2: 6inc (12)
3-6: sc in each st around (4 rnds) (12)
7: (sc, dec, sc)3 (9) 8: sc in each st around (9) 9: (sc, dec)3 (6)
10: sc in each st around (6)

Cut the yarn leaving a tail for sewing. Sew the wings to the body. Don’t stuff them.
To attach the wing insert the needle in neighboring points on the body (points A and B) and then insert the needle through the first stitch on the wing. Then insert the needle again in the next set of neighboring points on the body (points B and C) and then insert the needle through the next stitch on the wing. Repeat these steps as many times as necessary across the detail. Fasten the thread. Hide the end inside the toy.

Place the eyes between rounds 7 and 8 leaving 6 sts between them (4 visible sts). Embroider the mouth with black cotton yarn (over rnd 9) and cheeks with pink yarn (between rnds 8 and 9).

Legs (make 4):

With black color:
Ch 4, start in the 2nd ch from the hook:
1: 3ss (3)
Cut the yarn, leaving a tail for attaching.
Attach pair of the legs over rnd 12 of the body and second pair of the legs over rnd 16 (also 11 sts between right and left legs). To attach a leg, pull one end of yarn through the st on the body with a needle. Tie a knot with the other end. Hide the ends inside the toy.

Antennas (make 2):

With black cotton yarn:
Ch 11, start in the 2nd ch from the hook:
1: hdc, dc, hdc, sc, 6ss (10)
Cut the yarn, leaving a tail for attaching.
