Remember this little guy? He was first published in Happily Hooked Magazine in February, but now he is available to download on my website and Ravelry for free!
He also gained a name: Chip! He is great at chipping away at all the new spring leaves.
While the pattern for his body is written in joined rounds (a great time to learn how!), he also looks great when made in continuous rounds. You can also have some fun placing his little feet in slightly different positions so he has crazy dancing feet!
Find some left over yarn in your stash and whip up a bunch of little caterpillars in all sorts of colours and sizes. Long ones, short ones, fuzzy ones – endless combinations! Can’t wait to see what you create.
Until next time,
My most recent pattern has been published in the digital crochet magazine Happily Hooked! You can find my cute little spring caterpillar pattern, along with the patterns for 9 additional designs by other crochet artists in the most recent issue of Happily Hooked.
I will eventually have the pattern available in my shop, but if you want it now, you can have a trial run of the magazine for only $0.99. That is a pretty good deal! I like that this magazine is digital, so you can read it on any device you have, but you can also save it to your ravelry library or download it and save it as a PDF to read later if you don’t have the time when it is first released.
You can also get a a “gold membership” to the magazine for a little extra (you can add it after you purchase a regular subscription) and you get even more free patterns and deals – including my little Bobby the Bumble Bee pattern until mid March!
The caterpillar pattern is really fun – you can use up yarn ends you have in your stash, even yarn from different brands, and your caterpillar will turn out pretty unique! While the pattern is written in joined rounds for cleaner colour changes, you can make it in continuous rounds if you prefer. The little legs are fun bobble stitches, and if you change there position each round, your caterpillar will look like it has crazy dancing legs!
I look forward to seeing lots of caterpillars come out for the spring – which I hope is on its way soon!!
Until next time,
