My father is a lepidopterist, an entomologist who specializes in moths. He is hard to please when it comes to realistic details. These little larvae are sure to impress the pickiest insectophile in your life. This army of caterpillars is inspired by the larvae in the Sphingidae family – hawk moths, sphinx moths and hummingbird moths. Purl ridges create their segmented abdomens, and knitted bobbles form their tiny legs. ~Miranda Harp, designer
