Minimee Crochet Bug Feelers (2x)

kostenlose Anleitung - Häkelanleitung - Amigurumi - Minimee Wanze häkeln - BlibThe feelers for your little bug are easily crocheted in just one row. As a small highlight you can make a few knots into the feelers.

  • lavender:
  • 1st row: 10 chain stitches = 10 stitches
  • cut the thread generous, pull off the loop, DONT cut the thread end, will be needed for sewing later

When your feelers are done, you just tie a knot at the beginning of the line of chain stitches . The thread end of the beginning is very useful to not break your fingers. However you need to be careful, that the knot is really on the line of chain stitches and not on the thread end. When you are done, you can carefully cut the thread end at the knot. But do not cut into the knot or into the chain stitches , otherwise it will literally dissolve in the air.
