This is my final bug for a while. I know you are probably thinking, "Why do I want to knit a stag beetle?" But I would say "Why not?". I spent a long time trying to knit and fasten little legs and horns, but in the end decided that having an acetate frame was the best way to go. The knitting is then sewn around the frame. The pattern has a page at the back with two beetles to print on card or acetate. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knitting SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 3 inches long

The inspiration for my knitting patterns often comes from nature. I love little knitting projects, and try my hardest to be realistic with my plant and animal designs. Often my projects start from something very personal: my own house or my husband's first car. Then I develop them into something that I think will be appealing. I live on the outskirts of London, and work part-time at a local school. My own children are always doing something creative. At school I love the days when we get really messy.
