My son handed me his favorite book of the Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle and asked me to make it a scarf…so I did.

These colors are merely suggestions based on the color scheme of the Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. If you wish to obtain a longer scarf, merely add more sections.

The body of the caterpillar is worked from the inside out as a tube utilizing rows of stockinette and reverse stockinette to create segments of the body.
