I used all yarn from partial skeins leftover from other projects. They are all acrylic (very washable and thus perfect for a baby toy). Most of the yarn is of the rougher acrylic variety and thus was going to sit neglected in the stash because I didn't want to use it for anything like clothes or a blanket. Perfect for this little toy.
I discovered the pattern through Ravelry. (I'm Haley327. I really have NOT used Ravelry to its full potential, but find it to be a fun tool when I have time to play.) This pattern was easy to follow and fun to knit. I stuffed the caterpillar with quilting batting borrowed from my sister (I knit this while I was in Virginia for the triplets' baptism). The only change I made to the pattern was that I did i-cord for the legs and antenna instead of knitting in the round on two doublepoints.
Sorry these pictures are not better. My camera is refusing to take flash pictures so most of my pics are turning out blurry these days. Thus I have very few pics from the baptism which is a shame as all three babies looked adorable! Anyway, hope you enjoy this little bit of happy knitting. Hopefully more to come soon.
