CATERPILLARS, FOOD, COCOON, BUTTERFLY

KNIT ON 2.25mm STRAIGHT NEEDLES

2 SIZES OF CATERPILLAR (BABY AND WELL FED)
THE BABY CAN BE MADE AS A FINGER PUPPET AND IS DESIGNED TO FIT THROUGH THE HOLES IN THE FOOD.

THE FOOD INCLUDES: APPLE PLUM, PEAR, ORANGE, STRAWBERRY
CHOCOLATE CAKE, ICE CREAM, GHERKIN, CHEESE, SALAMI, LOLLIPOP, CHERRY PIE, SAUSAGE, CUP CAKE AND WATERMELON
PLUS THE LEAF.
THE FOOD IS ALL KNIT WITH HOLES FOR THE BABY CATERPILLAR TO EAT THROUGH.

THERE IS ALSO INCLUDED A COCOON AND A BUTTERFLY TO FINISH THE STORY.

Help your child identify food and colours
(my local library has already laid claim to the samples for their toddler group).

THEY AVERAGE AROUND 8cm TALL AND USE ODDMENTS OF DK YARN, MAKING THEM VERY QUICK AND CHEAP TO KNIT.
CAN ALSO BE MADE INTO A MOBILE TO HANG IN THE NURSERY.

NO BUTTONS OR BEADS ARE USED, MAKING THEM CHILD FRIENDLY
