Thread Butterfly

I saw the pattern for these little butterflies on Ravelry and had to give them a try – they were very easy and quick to make – the second one much faster than the first. The pattern gets you to make a sort of rippled flower that won’t lay flat and when you fold it in half it makes this wonderful butterfly shape. These are the only colours of crochet thread I have at the moment so I just made these two to try out the pattern – I think a couple would look really good added to a basic green hat for a baby or toddler. I used crochet thread I had lying around and a 2mm hook making the finished butterflies ~5cm (2″) across the widest part of the wings. If you want to give them a try the pattern is a pdf that can be downloaded for free from Ravelry called Butterfly Grace.
