Wings



The wings are made with the crocodile stitch. I will be adding an instructional video for the crocodile stitch to my youtube channel soon.


with electric blue and size H hook. ch 5. Make a slst in the first st on the foundation ch wich will join your ch into a circle. Ch 3 and work 5 dc into the center of the ring. Ch 1 and work 5 dc into the center again. Move all 10 dc sts as close together as possible, ch 3. Dc into the 2 loops below the ch. thid will turn your work to the side. Ch 1 and dc into center ring. Ch1 work a double crochet into the side of the FIRST dc ch you made in the first “shell” work another dc into the same st. Turn your work around and work 5 dc sts around the edge st. ch1 turn your work so the dc sts you just made are facing away from you. Work 5 dc around the next dc st “bar.” Slst into the top of the middle dc st. Then make 5 dc around the “bar ” of the next dc. Ch1 Spin work and work 5 dc around the last bar. Cut yarn and pull end through the last ch on your hook. attach the wing to the side of the body.

Crochet bow-tie

Chain 5.

join the chain to the first chain with a slip stitch. (this will form a ring)

Ch 4

Work 5 Triple (AKA Treble) crochet into the center of the ring.

Move all the Triple crochet stitches to one side of the bow.

On the other side of the ring, make 5 Triple crochet into the ring.

Cut about 12 inches of yarn and close the loop.

Wrap your length of yarn neatly around the center of the bow.

    This is really a long shot, but I am making a sweater for my son using Cascade 220 Superwash Color #854 Lot 4133 and I am afraid I will not have enough to finish. Do you have any left that you would be willing to sell me?

    Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?

    A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog
    stand out. Please let me know where you got your theme.
    Thank you
