Sometimes, it's really exciting to create something ususual and not just an extra sweater or scarf!
I just love spiders and find them so beautiful. This pattern will enable you to create your own little spiderling sculptures, with thin wire legs that you can pose just how you want.
It’s suitable for beginner, but you do need to feel a little confident about shaping your spiderling’s legs.
