Butterfly Applique

By Janet Carrillo "damn it Janet, let's crochet!"
 Ideas on how to use these appliques...
*These would be great to apply to any project.
*You can add them to kitchen towels,
*turn them into a keychain or fridge magnet.
*You can also make several and make a garland.
*Attach a ribbon to make them into bookmarks.

approx. size: 1.0"Height x 1.0"Length
...but can vary based on yarn and hook size.

*Crochet hook size: 2.0mm
*Lace weight yarn: color of choice
*Tapestry Needle
*Paperclip (optional)
*Hot Glue

  Numbers in ( ) at the end of each round/row indicate the total number of stitches.
  Always use stitch markers to mark your rounds.
  You ALWAYS do the first stitch where you sl st from the previous round.
  The ch2, at the beginning don’t count as a stitch.

  Triple Crochet (tr) - Y/O hook twice, insert hook into stitch & pull up a loop (4 loops remaining), Y/O hook & pull thru 2 loops (3 loops remaining), Y/O hook & pull thru 2 loops (2 loops remaining, Y/O hook & pull thru the 2 remaining loops.

  Rnd 1: sl st, ch3, 4tr, ch3, sl st, ch3, 4tr, ch3, sl st, ch2, 3dc, ch2, sl st, ch2, 3dc, ch2, sl st into magic ring
F/O, secure and weave in the ends. Not too tightly, wrap the beige yarn 4 times around the middle of the butterfly. Make a knot or two on the top to secure it and to make the antennas. Trim the antennas if necessary.

     Glue a paperclip on the back.

  1. What is the starting ch? Or do I do magic circle? Please and thank you!

    1. Hello Bonne,
      No starting chain.
      All the stitches are done inside the magic ring like indicated in the pattern.
