How to crochet a Spider Applique`

I love this applique` of a black spider …. perfect for Halloween but also for scrap-booking, embellishing your hair accessories, hats, pants, shirts …. and so many other things.

I used Schachenmayr Bravo yarn with a 3.5 mm hook.

Body

Chain 4 with your yarn and Slip Stitch into your first chain to form a ring.

Round 1

Chain 3 (this counts for your first double crochet) and work 13 double crochet in your ring. Join with a Slip Stitch in your first double crochet (in your 3rd chain) (=14 dc)
