Long-legged insects

I reviewed my insects patterns and, because they all have the same basic body shape, decided to merge the patterns. So now you can find the instructions for all three in one pdf file.

If you already purchased one of them, you'll get the update for free, just write me an email HERE and include your order number. If not, you can get a copy of the pattern HERE.

A little preview with a full materials list and pattern info HERE.

Happy crocheting!

Anthropomorphized insects.

I will be adding more cute long-legged insects to this collection in the future, but I really want to make some dolls next. I will have to finish two projects first and then I can start working on dolls that I have been planning for over six months. I even bought the yarn months ago, it is still waiting to become toys.

Patterns for these three pals are available on Etsy, Ravelry and Craftsy. Happy crocheting!
