Euplagia quadripunctaria, the Jersey tiger, is a day-flying moth. Its wingspan is 52–65 mm. This moth flies in Europe from Estonia and Latvia in the north to the Mediterranean coast and islands in the south. It is also found in West Russia, South Urals, Asia Minor, Rhodes and nearby islands, the Near East, Caucasus, South Turkmenistan, and Iran. It is also frequent seen in the Channel Islands and was rarely met in the British Isles in Victorian times.
The wings of the moth in this pattern can be made using square stitch or herringbone stitch. Or they can be loomed
I wove them using herringbone stitch.
The body is woven using a sort of tubular square stitch.
12 colours of seed beads are needed to make the moth. 2 toho beads palettes are offered: for opaque beads and for metal-lined ones.
The pattern includes a photo of the finished moth and 19 graphs showing the weaving of the wings, of the body and joining the wings and the body.
