Make a magic ring leaving a long tail (it will become one of the antenna later) Begin by crocheting into the ring itself:

Top left lobe:

Ch 6, 1 dtr, 2 tr, 1 dc, ch3, sl st,

Bottom left lobe:

ch 3, 1 dc, 1 tr, ch4, sl st,

Bottom right lobe:

ch 4, 1 tr, i dc, ch 3 sl st,

Top right lobe:

Ch 3, 1 dc, 2 tr, 1 dtr, ch 6 sl st

Pull your original tail through the last loop and bind off both ends.

Tie a small knot at the end of the antenna for a little extra embellishment.
