Crochet Your Own Very Hungry Caterpillar

When I heard a friend of mine had crocheted her own version of the “Tickle Monster” for her daughter,
I immediately thought of The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

It was one of my favorite books growing up. I would read it over and over, gobbling all the words just like the Caterpillar eating all food.  As result, I’ve become a voracious reader.

I’ve also become a voracious crocheter.

When I saw this pattern by Twinkie Chan (I’d recommend using Amazing® yarn in Rainforest for a gradient look), I was immediately taken back to my childhood and my favorite book. Make one yourself, along with everything the Very Hungry Caterpillar ate, and pick out items as you read the book together with the children in your life.

For those unsure how much he actually ate:

Although he ate so much … remember he did eventually turned into a beautiful butterfly.  Are there any books that have inspired you to knit or crochet the main character?
