Here is the secret life of an ant. After she was busy all day with collecting and storing food for winter she quickly changed clothes and went to an art school where she felt she is alive.
I would recommend this pattern to crocheters with intermediate crochet skill as making her lasts quite a while. But this is the only reason. I used the most basic crochet stitches so a beginner can make it easily too.
I tried to reduce the sewing by making the head and the body to be a single piece. And I will show you a great method to prevent the head from tilting backwards. I call it neck stiffener but if you know a better word to name it please let me know below in the comment section.

I designed a tube-like shape that I call neck stiffener:
¨ This will be a tube-like shape, that needs to be inserted into the neck after the head is filled and most of the body part is already done
¨ Must be filled very firmly- seeing the filling is not an issue at this point, it is a must :) - if it is done as written it will prevent the head from tilting backward
¨ Insert it into the neck after Row 49 - - approximately half of it goes into the head and half of it stays in the body (In the Ad-free PDF pattern there are several photos about this step)
