Size:
Actual – Completed Caterpillar is approx
measurements – 35 cm/14 in long

YOU WILL NEED
– 1 x 100g ball of Paintbox Yarns Simply DK in each
of A – Champagne White, B – Tomato Red,

– Oddment of black yarn (or embroidery thread) for eyes
– 3.00mm (UK 11 – US C2/D3) crochet hook
– Washable toy filling
– Red crayon (optional – to colour cheeks)

TENSION (GAUGE)
When making a toy such as this, it is not essential to work to the exact tension. If your tension is tight, with more stitches and rows than stated, your toy will be smaller. If your tension is loose, with less stitches and rows than stated, your toy will be larger. However, if your tension is too loose, the toy filling will show through the crochet and spoil the look of the finished item.

Make another 3 Body Sections in this way – one using C, one using D and one using E.

Insert a little toy filling inside each Leg so they are very firmly filled. (Note: If the Legs are not filled enough they will not support the Body Sections and Caterpillar will not be able tostand up!) Using photograph as a guide, sew 2 Legs to each Body Section, mixing colours so that colour used for Legs does NOT match colour of Body Section they are sewn to.
