I just wanted to share my method for crocheting antennae for Bumblebee or Ladybug Hats.
The antennae are firm, but can also be shaped with your fingers for a curved effect.
You can use this method on hats, amigurumi, or any project where you need the antennae to stand up.
(Note: I am not providing a hat pattern with this tutorial.)
You will need WW yarn, I hook, and scissors.
Holding 2 strands of yarn and leaving 4-5" starting tail, ch 6. Slip stitch into 2nd ch from hook, and in each ch to end. *Make sure you're working your slip stitch under the top loop and the back bump. Fasten off, leaving 4-5" tail. Use your starting and ending tails to tie antenna snugly between the stitches of your hat. In my photo above, they were placed between rounds 3 and 4. You can just trim the ends, or weave them in, if you prefer.
That's it! Happy crocheting!
