A crochet butterfly will be a great match for a crochet dress or a Panama hat you crocheted on your own.
1. We make 5 stitch patterns. Then, we connect them in a circle with the help of a connective crochet.
2. We make 3 turning chain stitches. Then, we crochet a set of 2 chain stitches and 2 dc 7 times.
3. We finish the row with a dc and connect it in a circle. We make 3 turning chain stitches.
4. We go on crocheting a new row. We do it by getting the crochet under 2 chain stitches of the previous row. We crochet 2 dc, 3 chain stitches, 3 dc. Then, there should be 3 dc, 3 chain stitches and 3dc (we repeat this 7 times and connect the row in a circle).
5. Next, we make a turning chain stitch and crochet according to the following way under 3 chain stitches of the previous row. We crochet 6 dc, a chain stitch, 6 dc. We repeat this 8 times and connect the row in a circle. Between the “fans” of the previous row, we crochet a single crochet.
6. The last row we crochet with single crochets.
7. Here is the flower we have.
8. We fold the flower in halves.
9. As a result, we have the butterfly that looks the following way.
10. Now, we crochet the body and tendrils of the butterfly. We make 10 chain stitches for the body.
11. We make 9 more chain stitches for the tendrils and crochet a slip stitch into the second loop from the end.
12. By crocheting a connective crochet we make 1 tendril. The same way we crochet the second tendril.
13. We get to working on the body that we crochet with single crochets.
14. This is what the body with the tendrils looks like in the end. We leave a longer end of the thread in order to stitch the body to the butterfly with the help of it.
15. As a result, this is the beautiful butterfly we get.
Your butterflies may be of different colours and sizes. Turn on your imagination while crocheting. Let your crocheting experience be successful!
