I decided to design a simpler version of my monarch caterpillar pattern. Whilst still aiming for a very realistic caterpillar, this one is much easier to knit. It is knitted on 2 needles, and I think because I have used garter stitch, looks even more like the real thing.
I love creating little critters, and since I have already made a monarch butterfly, it only seemed sensible to knit a chrysallis as well.
So this pattern contains the instructions for both the caterpillar and chrysallis. The instructions are very straight forward, and I include stitch counts at the end of rows. The making up instructions for the chrysallis also includes photographs.
I have always liked making things, and although I have been knitting a lot recently, I also like sewing and other crafts.
I live on the outskirts of London, and work part-time at a local school, and have partly got back into making things because my children are always doing something creative. At school I love the days when we get really messy.
