Who says you can’t own your own volcano? I don’t!

Why not try knitting up a whole bunch to decorate your mantlepiece or bookshelf? They also make super cute gifts for geologists, physicists and, of course, vulcanologists!

The ButterflyLove Amigurumi Volcano Family pdf knitting pattern gives you clear step by step instructions to make your own unpredictable geological features.

The basic patterns are augmented with advice on how to make:

  • the main lava pit
  • smoke plumes
  • furrowed surfaces
  • lava flows

It only involves knitting flat and this pattern is suitable for an intermediate knitter or beginner wishing to expand their skill set.

You can also contact me at any point if you need technical advice or have any other queries.

2 knitting needles (US2.5/3mm or size required to match tension advice)
