This is a crochet pattern to make a large Monarch Butterfly Caterpillar. This pattern makes a much larger and more accurate-to-nature larva than my 2016 pattern (now retired) as well as will teach you how to get perfect stripes. This is the most popular and best-selling of all of my caterpillar designs. The Monarch is the most beloved insect in all of North America and the requests for this item have been endless. It’s time to bring in some backup!

This pattern is in English and uses American crochet terms.
