Take a wire of 15 cm length. If the wire is too thin, put 2 wires together. Tightly wind about 1 cm of wire with black thread (in the middle). Put a bead on the wire (the bead is in the middle), fold the wire in half and wind 2 ends of the wire with black thread (about 4 cm). Tightly tie the ends. Make the second part the same way.
Rnd 1: 6 sc in a magic ring
Rnd 2: (inc) repeat 6 times 
Rnd 3: (sc in the next 1 st, inc) repeat 6 times 
Rnd 4: (sc in the next 2 st, inc) repeat 6 times 
Rnd 5: (sc in the next 3 st, inc) repeat 6 times 
Rnd 6: (sc in the next 4 st, inc) repeat 6 times 
Rnd 7-8: sc in all 36 st
At this step insert antennae between Rounds 4 and 5, so that they stick out for about 1-1.5 cm. Bend the ends of the wire and wind them together into a small knot. Continue crocheting the head.
