…Scraps of black, white and golden yellow DK weight yarn with a 3mm hook, and the little fella has come out pretty much life-size, measuring just 3cm long.

The body is made in amigurumi style (UK dc / US sc stitches worked in a continuous spiral), and each wing is worked in 3 teeny tiny dc/sc rows. I’m writing this pattern using UK term as follows :

sl st slip stitch :: insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch, then through the loop on your hook.

dc double crochet :: insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch (two loops on hook), yarn over and pull through both loops on hook (note :: this is equivalent to the US sc stitch)
