Several of you enjoyed what I shared in my post yesterday about the crocheted butterflies. If you missed that post, please look here. Some of you wanted to see photos and some wanted the pattern. So, I thought I would share that with you today. First, here are some photos of the butterflies we have collected over the years. We try to reuse them instead of getting new ones each year because it does take a lot to crochet SO many butterflies for Easter.
And here is a link to the pattern. This pattern is a bit time consuming. If you want something more simple, here is a pattern I love to use:
Ch 3, sl st in 1st ch to form a ring.
Notes: 1 round completes the butterfly. All of the stitches on Rnd 1 are worked in the Ch 3 ring, and stitches need to be pushed toward the beg of the rnd as you crochet.
Rnd 1: * ch 3, 2 tr, ch 3, sl st **, [ch 2, dc, ch 2, sl st] twice, rep from * to ** once, [ch 4, sl st in 2nd ch from hook and next 2 ch, sl st] twice.
Unfornately, I can't remember where I got the pattern so I cannot give the person credit. I am SO sorry. You can see the photo of this little butterfly by clicking here. This sweet, easy butterfly is to the right of the light pink flower in the photo. :) These are much easier and quicker to make!
I hope you enjoy these, and may God bless you as you use them in your ministries! Blessings,
