Crochet Pattern: Ladybug

By Candace – 5 Comments
I’m normally not very big on insects, but ladybugs are a notable exception. For their simplicity, they’re quite pretty, and they’re pretty much synonymous with warm weather. This pattern requires some simple assembly and stuffing as well as embroidery on the wings.

Skill Level:

Finished Size: 3 1/2″ (9 cm) diameter

Materials:
Medium Weight Yarn (approximately 30 yards of black and 20 yards of red)
Crochet Hook H (5.0 mm)
Yarn needle
Stuffing

Gauge:
Rounds 1-3 in body pattern measure 2″ (5 cm) in diameter
