Having published my pattern for an ammonite recently, I now have a second fossil pattern - trilobite.  Each pattern will be for sale separately, but if you want to make both fossils I have set up a discount code on ravelr. Both fossil patterns can be bought together for £3.00 if you use the discount code FOSSIL. This offer will run for one month, until 11th November.
The trilobite has two flat pieces for the body, and two more pieces for the top section (not sure if I should call this a head). Apparently there were a great many different types of trilobites. I almost sewed on beads as eyes, but as he is meant to be a fossil and not a living trilobite, decided against this.  This is a great little make for using up those oddments of wool that every knitter ends up with.

For my photos I have borrowed my son's fossil trilobite, and while sorting through his books, found a really apt one to use as a backdrop in some of the photos.

Just a reminder that there is still plenty of time to join in my Ginx Woolly Linx party for October. Click on the photo above or at the top of the page to find the party. I would love to see what you have been working on this month.


  1. I love these cuddly creatures! Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog. Enjoy your weekend.

  2. Your talent continues to amaze me. I believe you can create anything and everything with your knitting. LOVE your header photo, too.

    Thank you for sharing at The Really Crafty Link Party this week. Pinned!

  5. Wow! That is so cute! I love trilobites!

  6. My middle son would have loved this when he was younger (he'd probably still love it now!) He loved fossils and anything fossil connected!
