Hungry Caterpillars and Hungry Tribbles
I bought Felix ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ as a ‘congratulations on being a big sister’ present when Inkling was born, after she had watched the short film adaption on Netflix. I was surprised that we didn’t already have a a copy as I’m a lover of books and have been actively trying to pass that love on.
Once bought and given, I thought it’d be nice for her to have a knitted set to go with the book, but she’ll be earning each bit for being good as opposed to it being more presents.
And on that train of thought, picked up another two books as gifts and plan to make knitted sets for those as well…cause why not?
Because I’m insane more like…
First of all, the Hungry Caterpillar!
This guy is based on the free pattern Caterpillar by Kimberly Chapman. I knitted bobbles for the feet into the body rather than later adding i-cord legs.
I even managed to get the apples done too this week!
I used the free pattern Apple Knitting Pattern by Linda Dawkins for these!
And on other knitting news (lots to show this week!) I discovered my tribble problem wasn’t under control after all…
A pink mutant varient was discovered lurking under the kitchen sink, all five have been captured, sterilised and sent off for further study… (MIL was rather taken with the captured blue ones I had, so felt it best to let her have these pink ones) Free pattern – Tribble by Abigail – 1870pearl.
