Crochet Pattern: Butterfly

By Emilee Gettle – March 27th, 2012 3 Comments
Spring is here! I am so glad, aren’t you? I can’t wait to spend my evenings outside as the weather warms up and the daylight lengthens. You just can’t beat the wonderful scent of lilacs, daffodils and tulips in the air. It won’t be long and butterflies will be visiting my garden again too. I just can’t wait to see them peacefully resting on my flowers. In anticipation of their arrival I created this butterfly pattern for you this week. You could use it for a pin or an applique. It’s great for kid’s clothing, totes, and hats. You could also sew it on baby blankets and accessories!

Many afghans for gifts and your own home. Toys for little ones and phone cases for older ones. Aunt Mary, your best friend, partner and child all have an item of clothing.
