Now we will do the small black rounds. In this case we will use the single crochet stitch:

ROW 1) Make a magic ring with 6 single crochet stitches. (As showed in the video tutorial). 

ROW 2) Make 2 single crochet stitches for each stitch of the previous row. You have an example of this row in this video

 ROW 3) Make 18 stitches in total with the pattern:  1 single crochet stitch / 2 single crochet stitches.

You have to make 6 black circles repeating this pattern.

Now we will make the face of our ladybug. We will do the little antennas later, now we are going to focus with the face. The form of the face it is not a half circle, so I create a pattern because I didn't find anything useful online. Please forgive my drawing skills!!! :) 

We basically have to start with 25 chain stitches and we go on with double crochet in the following rows skipping the stitches marked above. 

To do the antennas for the face, we have to make 5 chain stitches and just one row of single crochet stitches.

To make the central black line we have to just make 60 chain stitches and 1 row of single crochet stitches. 

Now we just need to make the little legs! To do that we make 10 chain stitches and make one row of single crochet stitches. We have to make 6 legs in total.

After we make all the pieces, we just need to sew them and voilà! Our little bug is done! If you have any doubt just leave a comment!
