This is a beautiful Swan made up of Bullion stitches. If you make 2, you can wear them as earrings.
In this pattern, the Bullion stitches are made this way: Wrap yarn 8 times around the hook, insert hook in stitch, yarn over, pull yarn through stitch, yarn over and pull through all loops on hook, ch 1.
In this pattern I use US stitch abbreviations.
I used hook size 2.5 mm for this project and 4 ply yarn.

How to make Life Size patterns using crochet Doll patterns
If you multiply the stitches with 7 or 8, and use a larger hook such as 5.5 mm, then it is possible to recreate a doll pattern to become a real size pattern. :) You might also ahve to change yarn size to one that fits better around a larger size hook.

In this example, I am using crochet hook size 5.5 mm.
Crochet yarn: I used chunky yarn from Fashion Plus’s amazing value pack of 100 % Mixed fibres.
PS. Any chunky yarn will do or any yarn you can use with a crochet hook 5.00 mm.
Crochet hook: 5.0 mm and 4.00 mm
Broomstick thick knitting needle (about 20 mm).
Crochet Halter top pattern ~ step by step with pictures
This Halter top is perfect to wear on top of a bikini, a singlet, or a bathing suit. I used quite chunky yarn and crochet hook 5.0 mm and 4.00 mm. In this pattern, I use the stitch ‘chainless single crochet’. You can also use a regular foundation chain. The front consists of 3 motifs and solomon’s chains between the motifs. You only need to apply step 1 of Solomon’s knot to complete this chain. If you don’t want to use Solomon’s knot, you can use regular chains.
I also use Broomstick technique in this motif.
