Crochet Caterpillar

My son fell in love with one of my favorite books about a caterpillar. I love all the little stuffed toys that come with books, but not enough to buy them all! I was inspired while searching for a pattern (to no avail) and so, I improvised. . The pattern is available at my etsy store,


  1. Wow, it looks amazing, just like the real thing. Here we call him Rupsje Nooitgenoeg. I'n going to search for the right shade of green. I think I can manage to crochet balls.
    Happy Holidays and thanks for sharing with us!

  2. I just finished my caterpillar.
    I used your pattern for inspiration ;)

    1. Thank you :)
      yours look better since it is closer to the original ;)

  3. This is great! I've been wanting to make one of these for my son, as he loves the hungry caterpillar. I have a link party for the fiber arts where I'd love for you to share this! It will get you lots of exposure!

  4. my son and i love it he is 5 and at his school all the preschoolclasses have names and this year his class is this catterpillar so i'm making one for him and one for his class.
