Aglia tau moth, or the Tau Emperor, is a European moth.
Its wingspan is 64-80 mm.
Though these moths fly mostly at night, males look for females at daytime, too.
Adult aglia tau moths do not eat at all.
The wings in this pattern are suitable for brick stitch or peyote stitch.
I wove them using peyote stitch. And the thread way is shown for peyote stitch.
The body is woven using a sort of tubular RAW.
You’ll need some fishing line with diameter 0,15 mm, a beading needle size 11-15 and 15 colours of seed beads size 11.
2 toho beads palettes are offered for:
opaque beads and for metal-lined ones.
The pattern includes a photo of the finished moth and 4 graphs showing the weaving of the wings, of the body and joining the wings and the body.
This moth pattern is a part of the collection "36 butterflies and moths of the world".
