Hungry Caterpillar Crochet Stuffed Animal

Last year for Christmas I crocheted a book character for each of my nephews. I then gave them the character and the corresponding book. Below are pictures of the Very Hungry Caterpillar I crocheted, based on the one from Eric Carle’s book of the same name. I got the pattern for free on Ravely here.

To make this caterpillar you will need worsted wight yarn in green, yellow, red, and brown. I think all of my colors are Red Heart, but the green has lost its wrapper, so I’m not quite sure. 🙂 You’ll also need stuffing and a size F crochet needle. As well as scissors and a tapestry needle, of course.

Let me know if you have any questions or comments! I hope you enjoy seeing bookish crafts. 🙂
