How to Crochet: Butterfly StitchBy Candace – 13 Comments
The butterfly stitch is a simple technique that creates a lace-like accent. It’s worked between other stitches, usually double crochet or taller. The butterfly stitch is worked over four rows and uses long chain spaces. In this tutorial, the chain spaces are 8 chains long.

Start by beginning your row as usual. You’ll need at least one stitch on each end of the butterfly stitch to anchor it to. Make the required number of chains and finish your first three rows.
On the fourth row, start the row and make half the number chains.
Insert your hook into the chain space of the first row of your butterfly stitch.
Yarn over and pull up a loop.
