School starts soon. And the 3 year old is more than annoyed he isnt climbing on the bus with hus siblings yet.

So i’m going to try to preschool him, and he gets “school” while I experiment ont that thing called home schooling!

Starting with a classic book, Hungry Hungry Caterpiller.

I found the book, and there is a great video on youtube.

Then I have made some role play characters to go with it and a few work pages in a reuseable book.

I still need the butterfly, I will need to find a pattern. But here is the progress so far! 

I will leave a “pattern” but I know it is full of mistakes. Sorry.


Used my stash yarn and a 3.5mm needle 
Curly cue is 

35 ch and 4 dc in every chain 

Head is 

8 sc in a magic ring 
2sc in ever sc 
Sc around, two rounds. 
1sc, dec repeat around. 
Stuff and sc dec until closed.

Sew to curley cue. And embroider on eyes and sew on felt feelers.

Egg is a repeat of the head in white and add three more rows of sc in the middle to make it egg shaped.

Cacoon is

 ch20, 4dc in every chain to end. 
Ch 10, attach to ch #5 and sl st back to the top of the spiral. 
Add 2 leaves from the pattern:www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/small-leaf-3

Ch7, sl st in 2nd ch from end. Sc, dc, dc, sc, sl st and turn work to work the oposit side. Sl st, sc, dc, dc, sc, sl st. Finish off.

Big leaf is the pattern:http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/leaf-coas… 
But I minimized the pattern:

Rnd 1: Ch2, 4 sc in the 2nd ch from hook (4) 
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc (8) 
Rnd 3: 1 sc, inc (12) 
Rnd 4: 2 sc, i (16) 
Rnd 5: 3 sc, inc (20) 
Rnd 6: 4 sc, inc (24) 
Rnd 7: 5 sc, inc (28) 
Rnd 8: 6 sc, inc (32) 
Rnd 9: 7 sc, inc (36) 
Rnd 10: 8 sc, inc (40) 
Rnd 11: 9 sc, inc (44) 
Rnd 12: 10 sc, inc (48) 
Rnds13-19: 7 rnds with 1 sc in each sc

Rnd 20: 10sc,dec (44)

Rnd21: 1 Sc all the way around

Rnd 22: 9 sc, dec (40) 
Rnd 23: 8 sc, dec (36) 
Rnd 24: 4 sc, dec (30) 
Rnd 25: 3 sc, dec (24) 
Rnd 26: 2 sc, dec (18) 
Rnd 27: 1 sc, dec (12) 
Rnd 28: Decrease 6 times (6)

Now there are 6 sc left, flatten out the leaf and crochet a sl st in the first 2 sc, ch 10, 9 sc back, sl st in the last 2 sc. F/O.
