    Step 1

    Take a yarn for the body part (as well as antenna). Hold an end of the yarn without cutting it from the bundle. Insert the yarn in the middle of the fork as shown in the picture. Place the yarn carefully making sure it doesn't come out of the fork as we'll work with it later

    Now weave the yarn over-under around the prongs. Keep doing the same until you weave 4-6 rounds. If you're using thick yarn weave 4-5 rounds but for thin yarns weave 5-6 rounds. After weaving enough rounds carefully push the yarns downwards.
