Daphnis nerii moth
Daphnis nerii, the oleander hawk-moth or army green moth was described by Carl Linnaeus in 1758.
The moth inhabits wide areas of Africa, Asia and certain Hawaiian Islands. The species migrates to eastern and sothern Europe in summer.
The winspan is 9-10 cm.
The pattern is suitable for brick stitch or peyote stitch.
I wove the moth using peyote stitch. And the thread way is shown for peyote stitch.
You’ll need some fishing line with diameter 0,15 mm, a beading needle size 11-15 and 16 colours of seed beads size 11 or size 10.
2 toho beads palettes are offered: for opaque beads and for metal-lined ones.
The pattern includes a photo of the finished moth and 3 graphs showing the way of weaving the butterfly including how to fasten the thread.
