Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knitting and a Little Embroidery

Pattern Description:

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.

If you look in my pattern store you will also find my pattern for a Monarch Butterfly.

  • caterpillar 10 - 12 cm
  • chrysallis - 6 cm

Materials:

  • 4ply wool - green, black and white
  • Knitting Needles 2.5mm or 3mm
