This cute little lady bug is perfect for all ages!

This finished size is about 5.5in long and 3.5in wide.

You will need:
US size 4 knitting needles
A crochet hook (for the antennae). I use J, but I’m sure you could use another size. (I’m not a crochet person so I’m not really sure!)
Less than one ball of red and black worsted weight yarn.
Some fiberfill stuffing

This ladybug is knit in 2 pieces, sewn together and stuffed.
You should have a yarn/tapestry needle to sew the pieces together and embroider the spots.

Skill level for this pattern: Beginner
You should know how to knit, purl, inc, and dec.

Making the chain stitches in this pattern was the first time I’ve ever crocheted, so don’t be scared of a little crochet!
