The Very Hungry Caterpillar

I made this last week – The Very Hungry Caterpillar outfit, not the baby!


The baby belongs to Clare. A girl I went to school with. And he was born last Tuesday. Isn’t he gorgeous. Thank you Clare for allowing me to share this picture of your handsome new addition. And thank you too for asking me to make this outfit for him.


You can buy the pattern on Etsy from lilredhead. I adapted it by using an additional strand of yellow DK yarn alongside the chunky yarn, rather than using the fun fur stated in the pattern.

I really, really, really enjoyed making this set. The pattern was easy to follow. The yarn was so chunky and soft and the pattern worked up super quick. I made the whole thing in one evening and stitched the eyes and antenna onto the hat the following evening. I love a quick project!


I almost felt a little broody making this – almost!
What’s the cutest crochet make you’ve ever made?
