Fasten off, weave in ends.

Wings (make 2)
ch 12
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in next 3, skip 2 stitches, sc across, ch 2
Row 2: Sc on other side of beginning chains ( don’t turn your work over, but rotate it 90 degrees clockwise so the beginning chains are up so you can work them ), 5 sc across, ch 1, turn
Row 3: Sc in each st across, 2 sc in final sc, ch 1 fasten off pulling the last ch1 snug with a long enough tail to stitch it to the ball.
When you stitch the wings to the ball, stitch them over the first and last stitches.
