The first wing

R1: Start with a slip stitch. Make 8 chs. Join 1st and last ch with a sl st to create a circle. Make 3 chs. Work 6 dc in the circle.

 

R2: Make 3 chs that will represent a dc and turn the work over. Work 2 dc in the next stitch to create an increase of dc. Work 2 dc in next 2 stitches to have 3 increases in total. Work 3 dc in next stitches (1 dc in each stitch).

 

R3: Make 4 chs and turn the work over. Make 2 yo and work 1 trc in the next stitch. Make 2 yo and work one more trc in the same stitch to make an increase of trc. In the next stitch make an increase of dc (which is 2 dc in the same space). Make 2 chs and work a sl st in the next stitch.

Make 2 chs and work 2 dc (one in each stitch). Work an increase of dc.
