Ever wanted to crochet yourself a butterfly? Well here’s the pattern for you!

With it being Spring, there’s no better time to share a butterfly crochet pattern. This is the first pattern I’ve ever shared and I’m so excited.


Tension is not important for this project, but you may get different sizes based on yarn choice and hook size.


Each butterfly measures approximately 7cm tall and 10cm wide when working with a 4.5mm hook and worsted weight yarn.

    That is cute! Now, I just need to learn to crochet -ha. My birthday is just around the corner and I asked for a beginning crochet book as crocheting is something that I’ve always wanted to do. Thanks for sharing.
