Description

This is a CROCHET PATTERN, not the finished item

Finished size is about 35cm from head to glowing tail

To make this you will need:
* Crochet hooks 4mm & 4.5mm
* Bulky weight yarn in Brown + small amounts of Black, White & Red
* Glow-in-the-dark yarn in Yellow (White works, too, if that's what you have available)
* Stuffing
* Needle for sewing

Difficuly level is easy to intermediate (a little embroidery)

Stitches you need to know:

Chain, sl st, sc, inc, dec, dc, hdc, bpsc (back post single crochet)

* * *

I have used Bernat’s glow-in-the-dark yarn to make this, but that yarn is listed as optional in the pattern, as I understand it is not readily available anymore.

The pattern is based on Europe’s most common firefly, Lampyris noctiluca, which is also known as the common glowworm. It is the female that has the strongest glow, partially because she does not have wings. She sits high up on tall grasses and attract the much smaller (and winged) males. The fireflies are actually beetles, though their common names suggest otherwise.

Because of the difference between the sexes I have chosen to include “female” in the pattern name to avoid any confusion :)
