Having published my pattern for an ammonite recently, I now have a second fossil pattern - trilobite.

Both fossil patterns can be bought together for £3.00 if you use the discount code FOSSIL. This offer will run for one month, until 11th November.

The trilobite has two flat pieces for the body, and two more pieces for the top section (not sure if I should call this a head). Apparently there were a great many different types of trilobites. I almost sewed on beads as eyes, but as he is meant to be a fossil and not a living trilobite, decided against this. This is a great little make for using up those oddments of wool that every knitter ends up with. Each trilobite takes roughly 4g of wool.

For my photos I have borrowed my son’s fossil trilobite, and while sorting through his books, found a really apt one to use as a backdrop in some of the photos.
