Here is a cute ant from the creator Svetlana Meshchenko – a wonderful gift in any circumstance for the little ones but also for the big lovers of crocheted toys.

Materials:

  • Yarn in three colors (gray, orange and black).  For the Chamomile: white, green and yellow (thinner yarn than those with which you crochet the ant).
  • Number of crochet according to the yarn
  • In the original pattern, the creator Svetlana Meshchenko  uses “Semenovskaya Carolina” yarn,  430m/100 gr.
  • The wire for the frame and antennae is thinner. It takes about 36cm for the body including legs and head, 22cm for the hands.
  • A bit of red yarn for the tongue. (cotton n°8 or thinner)
  • Plastic eyes, oval (2×1.5 cm) or certainly whoever wants can embroider or make them in felt

I used 300m / 100g acrylic wool and no.2.5 crochet hook. The ant has 20 cm without antennae.
