Crochet Pattern: Butterfly

By Emilee Gettle – 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!

Skill Level:

Finished Size: 2 1/2″ (6 cm) long and 2 1/2″ (6 cm) wide

Pink Baby Yarn (approximately 15 yards)
White Baby Yarn (approximately 3 yards)
Crochet Hook H (5 mm)

crochet yarn size 4

3 sc stitches = 1/2 inch
2 sc rows = 1/2 inch

    If this was made using a larger hook and thicker yarn, would it just be a bigger version?

    This is beautiful! Can’t wait to try it. I only have worsted yarn, so I hope it will turn out ok. Thanks!
