That's for the hat


Antennas

The antennas are made on 2 parts and then sewn together. 

With black - first make cord of 10 st (here is the tutorial), make 2. Now the top of the antennas, make 2:

Round 1: in mc sc 6.
Round 2: ch1, sc in same st, repeat *sc in next st, 2 sc in next st*, ss in ch 1 (9 st).
Round 3: ch 1, sc in same st, repeat *sc2tog, sc*, ss in ch1 (6 st). Cut off the yarn and sew to the cord.


Flower: 

The flower is pretty simple.
With yellow: in mc sc 12, ss at the first st.
Join white: *ch2, 3 dc in same st, dc in next st*, repeat 5 more times.

That's all - quite simple but any kid will like it :)
