Time for something new. I love projects that work up quickly and these definitely do. Plus, these little clips have grips on the inside so they don't slip even in the finest of hair. I can't wait to make more of these.
Using H hook and worsted weight yarn:
Chain 4 and form ring.
5 SC into ring. (slip st and tie off if you want to change colors for the petals here)
Slip st into first sc, chain 3
4 dc then slip st into same sc – repeat around and finish off
Glue to clippie…you can also use beads, buttons or jewels to glue or sew on flower.
With black –
Chain 4 and form ring (I personally like to use an adjustable ring here)
1) 5 sc into ring (or 5 sc to make adjustable ring)
2) 2 sc into each sc
3) 2sc, 1sc into each sc around
You have two choices here. You can tie off and create another small circle repeating steps 1 and 2 and then sew to first circle
Slip st into next sc, 1 hdc, 2dc, 1hdc into same sc and finish with slip st
Chain 6-9 (depends on how tight you crochet) – enough to match the length of the body.
Sc into 2nd chain from hook, hdc, 2dc, hdc, sc 9 (add hdc, dc, hdc as needed for length) – turn and add second row of sc if you want a larger wing
Repeat for second wing. Using black, place French knots where you want. You can also sew/glue sequins or felt circles (easier)
