1. Check your materials
Here’s what’s in your kit:

- Stitch marker attached to blue yarn
- Tapestry needle
- 10mm safety eyes
- Poly-fil stuffing
- Yellow yarn
- White yarn
- Blue yarn, with some stitches already made and a stitch marker attached
You might not know yet what all these materials are for, but fret not, it will all be revealed soon. The only other things you’ll need are scissors and the pattern, and you’re good to go!

Want to undo or redo your stitches?
Mistakes happen, even to the best of us. If you want to undo or redo any of your stitches, try to keep the original magic loop together. It's one of the trickiest techniques in crochet, so you'll thank yourself later for keeping it around.
- If your stitch marker is correctly in the first stitch of Round 2 – great! This means you can easily undo your stitches to get back to the beginning of Round 2.
- Forgot to put your stitch marker in? Your best bet is to reset back to the magic loop.
- If you got a little too gung-ho about undoing stitches and undid some of the magic loop, you'll need to add stitches back to the magic loop.
- Lastly, if you #CantStopWontStop and undid the whole thing, start over by crocheting a magic loop.
Once you get over the initial learning curve, you'll be crocheting on your merry way! One of the last pieces you'll make are the wings. Watch this video for a demo on how to finish the wings:
