A couple of people recently have looked at my spiders and thought they were crabs. I am not quite sure why (Do you get black crabs?) but it has prompted me to have a go at making some:
It turns out that crabs have eight legs plus two pincers, so they were a bit more fiddly than the spiders, plus I had to strengthen the pincers with pipe cleaners. Made in scheepjeswol Xl in coral on a 6mm hook. I have called them ‘Nip’ and ‘Tuck’
Now will anyone mistake them for orange spiders?
