Wings: (Make 2)
Make a slip knot…Leave a tail long enough to use for attaching the wing to chick later.
- 1: Ch 3
- 2: 4 DC into 3rd Ch from Hook (Ch 3 and 4 DC equal 5 DC)
- 3: 3 Tr into same 3rd chain from the hook that the previous Dc are made in
- 4: SL ST at end of last Tr, Tie off leaving a long tail for attaching later…
- 5: Weave finishing tail back through the last Tr to meet the other starting tail…Tie a secure knot but make it loose enough to maintain the shape of the wing..slightly pull the end of the wing to shape if needed.
Using your crochet hook or darning needle pull both yarn ends thru the side of chick, turn chick inside out, pull one yarn end over a stitch or 2 without going thru to the other side, then tie a secure knot using both yarn ends…Do the same for other wing.
