He's completely crocheted, the entire body is one piece. It's just a matter of increasing and decreasing. The antenna and legs are separate and they curl, so the ant kinda looks dead if i don't stretch him out.



Second photo is a close-up of his fuzzy goodness.



The little guy's not perfect, but he makes me smile.   Cheesy

Great job.  I love the pic on the roof.

Definitely made me smile on an otherwise gloomy day.

The yarn was definitely fickle.  It kept splitting and being obnoxious, but it was worth it.

I agree... I've used similar yarn, and by the end the product was cute, but I couldn't see any of my stitches to stitch into them...
