Crafty Intentions CROCHET PATTERN Five Beetles (printable PDF-file / 80 pages)


Developed by Megan Lapp aka Crafty Intentions, this pattern is for Five Beetles!! This pattern is written in U.S. terminology.


This pattern comes with instructions to make Five Beetles!! The pattern comes with instructions for FIVE different Beetle bodies including two types of Scarab beetles, a Stag Beetle, a Rhino Beetle, and a Hercules Beetle!!! There are optional inner wings that you can also utilize for an unfurled look, and every beetle body comes with its own outer-wings!! Everything you see in the photos is included in the pattern. All instructions are carefully depicted with words and photos! This pattern features clear step by step instruction with a lot of row-by-row photos. The gauge is not crucial to the pattern as long as the stitches are tight enough to hold stuffing.


This pattern is a total of 80 pages containing a full set of written instructions with photographic illustrations, and there are video tutorials for particular steps and stitches available on my YouTube channel. This Pattern consists of ONE PDF File, and the last 19 pages are Text-Only, Printer-Friendly instructions, but I strongly recommend you still refer to the photographic illustrations throughout the pattern if you have any questions.
