Supplies for crocheting caterpillars
Here’s what you’ll need to create your crochet lizard:
- Crochet hook(s)
- Notions (scissors, yarn needle, stitch markers, eyes)
Be sure to check your pattern to see what specific supplies you will need before getting started.
What’s the best yarn to use for caterpillars?
To make your crochet lizard, you’ll want to choose a yarn that’s soft, stretchy, and easily washable. Some children are very sensitive (assuming you are making it for children), so avoid scratchy yarns. Some excellent choices include acrylic, cotton, super wash wool, and super wash merino.
How much yarn do you need to make a crochet caterpillar?
Most crocheted lizards require approximately minimal use of yarn. This means that many lizards can be made with just one skein of yarn or less! Keep in mind that larger sizes, complicated patterns, and colourful patterns may require more yarn.
Tips for crocheting Lizards
If you do not have much experience with crochet lizards, then you will find the following tips useful to get you started on your project.
- Use the right materials: Use a worsted weight yarn in the colours of your choice. Choose a crochet hook that is the right size for your yarn and a tapestry needle to weave in the ends.
- Pay attention to the details: The caterpillar is made of multiple other compartments. This will depend on the pattern you decide to use, but it is best to pay attention to details.
- Use stitch markers: Mark the beginning of each round to help you keep track of your stitch count. This is especially helpful when you are a beginner and the pattern has a lot of compartments.
- Don’t cut the tails too short: Leave a long tail when fastening off each part. This will make it easier to sew the parts together and make a stronger, more durable stitch.
- Take your time: Crocheting a caterpillar can be time-consuming, so don’t feel rushed. Take your time and enjoy the process, and your finished amigurumi caterpillar will be all the more special because of it.
- Experiment with colour: You don’t have to stick to traditional solid colours like. Feel free to get creative and choose colours that you love.
