Knit Very Hungry Caterpillar Mobile


My friend, Kristin, shared this amazing knit mobile version of The Very Hungry Caterpillar with me. It was created by Flickr user, spinthrift115, but she doesn’t give any information about it with the pictures. Regardless, it’s beautifully done and a lot of fun. Thanks for sharing, Kristin!

    Hi! I can’t believe that there is a picture of my mobile here. I knitted it for a colleague at work who is having a baby later this month. I only put the pictures on Flickr so that I could upload them onto Ravelry. I made up the pattern myself as I went along. I am very flattered by your kind comments. Thank you. Spinthrift :-)

    Hi there,
    This mobile is just stunning!!! I am doing my nursery in this theme, and a mobile just doesnt exist out there. I was hoping you would be able to make one for me. What would the cost be?
    I live in Ontario, Canada. I am not sure where you reside but I just love this mobile so much and it would complete my nursery.
    Any information would be so super helpful. Thanks so much!!
    Again my email is
    Thanks again!

    My 82 year old Mom wants to make one of these. She is most interested in the Catapillar. Can I get a pattern? I work in glass, so I don’t know anything about knitting.
    Thanks for any help you can provide.

    Hi Spinthrift, I am on Ravelry as well and looked everywhere for your pattern as I absolutely adore it! Ive been looking for something like this for ages. Would you be able to send me the pattern? Or can I buy it from you?
    I do crochet so will have to interpret but would definitely be worth it for this gorgeous work if art :)
