INV DEC- Invisible decrease
HDC- Half double crochet

*Slowly stuff as you go, you want it to be firm but not stretched. You will be working in the round, I like using a stitch marker at the beginning of each round.

Let’s get crocheting! Using 3.5 mm hook throughout (eyes are made with 2.25 mm)

Body- 
The body is worked from the bottom up and is one continuous piece.

Round 77: INV DEC around (6)

Fasten off and sew remaining part closed, weave in your end

Rounds 3-4: SC around (12)
Round 5: SC in the first stitch, INV DEC, rpt around (8)

At the end of round 15 pinch the arm flat and make 4 SC across the top to close, fasten off and leave a long tail to sew onto the body.

Antennae- 
Make 2

Round 1: Create a magic circle with 6 SC
Round 2: SC INC in each stitch around (12)

Round 7: SC in the first stitch, INV DEC, rpt around (10)

Fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing and fill lightly with stuffing

Cheeks – 
Make 2

Make a magic circle with 6 SC, join with a slip stitch and fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing

Eyes –
Make 2

With 2.25 mm crochet hook and black crochet thread

Round 1: Create a magic circle with 8 HDC, join with a sl st to the first HDC, ch 1 (8)
Round 2: 2 SC in each stitch, join with a sl st to the first SC (16)

Fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing, with white thread pass your needle through a stitch once or twice to create reflection

Assembling everything together-

– Sew each antenna on starting at the 3rd round and ending at the 6th 
– Next, sew the arms angled in on each side making sure they are centered with the antennae (to keep them even I sewed each one on between the 5th and 8th round of each segment) 
– Lastly, using the pictures below sew on the eyes and cheeks. Using your crochet thread embroider a smile by passing your thread through in either a ‘U’ or ‘V’ shape 

Your Cuddly Caterpillar is complete! I hope you have enjoyed making this pattern.
