Crochet Pattern: Beginner’s ButterflyBy Erin Burger – 19 Comments
These beginner’s butterflies would be great used as an applique on pretty much anything! Blankets, scarfs, beanies, you name it and you could stick one of these simple butterflies on it. The butterfly is made all in one round, so it’s super fast to crochet!
Finished Size: 3″ (7.62 cm) wide across the wings, 3 1/2″ (8.89 cm) long
Small amounts of Worsted Weight yarn
Crochet Hook H (5.00 mm)
Gauge: not needed for this pattern
