I’ve created this step by step written pattern- complete with photos, tips, tricks and helpful links- with a guide to spider, bumblebee, beetle and pill bug creations with options for a wide variety of other bugs. 19 info packed pages, over 55 high res images, and links to basics, stitches, and assembly videos.

American Terms

Difficulty: Comfortable Beginner- Comfortable with chain bumps, rows and round changes, increasing and decreasing, single and front post single crochet. Sewing required. Some embroidery.

Yarns I used: I used a mixture of yarn from my stash; I made sure that all the colors of each bug were the same weight.
Bumblebee was created with Lion Brand Basic Stitch yarns.
Jeweled beetle was made from Red Heart Super Saver yarns.
Pill Bug from Lion Brand Mandala yarn (the body is unknown medium weight)
Spider: Patrons Grace Cotton (Light weight yarn)

***** A NOTE ON YARNS**Almost all of the yarns I use in my stash has been given to me, so they vary widely. However I suggest the same weight, and if possible the same brand if you are buying new skeins, of at least 3.5 oz of each color. This ensures that each piece will match in size and shape as “medium weight” can vary from brand to brand.

Colors needed for pieces: I suggest one body color and one accent color, unless creating a bumblebee which you will need black, yellow and white.
