(Free Crochet Pattern).

Small Butterfly is a beginner crochet pattern, simple and easy with a lot of pictures. This Butterfly applique is very easy and is highly recommended for the beginner crocheters. The butterfly starts from the center and is similar to the crochet flower - the wings and tentacles are instead of the petals. I included the pictures of every step of the process so it will be easy for you to follow the pattern.

The approximate size of a ready butterfly applique is 2 1/4 inches by 2 inches (6 cm by 5 cm). If you use smaller crochet hook the butterfly applique will be smaller.

Recommended weight yarn: Medium to worsted weight (weight category #4) I used Red Heart Super Saver in Hot Pink, Turqua and Spring Green.

Recommended crochet hook size: I 9 (5.5 mm) to J 10 (6.00 mm)

Abbreviations and stitches used:

CH - chain, SC - single crochet, HDC - half double crochet, DC - double crochet, TC - treble crochet.



Step 1. CH 3, join in a ring with a slip stitch. This is the "body" of the butterfly. CH 3 for the first wing.

Step 2: Wing 1: TC (treble crochet) in the "body" ring

Step 3: CH 3, slip stitch in the ring. The first wing of the small butterfly is ready.

Step 4: Wing 2: CH 2

Step 5: DC in the "body" ring.

Step 6: CH 2 and slip stitch in the "body" ring. The secong wing is ready.

Step 7: Repeat the Steps 4-6 for the third wing.
