Item details

Knit your little one a Hungry Caterpillar jacket complete with matching hat. Pattern includes sizes from 0-3 months up to 4 years old. Instructions for a cute pair of caterpillar booties are also included in sizes upto 12 months.

Imagine the aaaah factor when you gift these at a baby shower, especially if you include a copy of the poplar book Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.

My photographs show just a few colour choices to give you ideas.
Materials required
Circular needles in size 3.25mm and 4mm
Double Knitting (8ply) yarn (1 tester used worsted for a slightly bigger cardigan)
Buttons (Number depends on size knitted)

I designed this set to be seamless, and knitted the sleeves, hat and booties in the round using my circular needles, howwever one tester knitted her sleeves flat and then seamed them. You could do the same with the hat and booties.

Construction of cardigan.
Knitted from the bottom up, in one piece to armholes, where work is then divided into right front, back and left front sections.
Shoulders can be either grafted or cast off and seamed.
Caterpillar can also be made in 2 ways. 2 sets f instructions for him to be knitted separately and sewn on later. (This gives a fatter, plumper caterpillar) or a chart for intarsia (knitting the caterpillar as you work the body of the cardigan. )

Hat and booties also have two options, both include instructions for a plain set or a caterpillar set.

Of couree you can always message me, I can knit it for you.
