I was in a stash busting mood and thought of making some toys out of it, and here it is! I enjoy doing it and I think I'll make a few more for some kids.
It has got legs too, but I think they are too tiny...
OK, here's the tutorial:
Cast on 14 sts
Row 1: Increase (K1 f&b) into every sts [now 28 sts]
Row 2 and every even number row: purl
Row 3: *knit 1 st, Increase (k1 f&b) 1 st* [now 42 sts)
Follow stockinette pattern for another 25 rows
Row 29: *k1, k2tog* [now 28 sts]
Row 31: k2tog till end [now 14 sts]
Do not cast off. Join another color and follow pattern from row 1
For antena and legs, I've followed the pattern exactly from here:http://www.spunmag.com/issue/0.5/caterpillar.html
