I love the story behind this projectwhich is much longer than the actual patternand I understand the designers frustration at finding just the right pattern for the project. I have several other butterfly patterns in my collection, and Jaimes Butterfly is one of my go to favorites. I use a variety of yarns and threads depending on the project, and this design has never let me down.

I love butterflys and this Butterfly Bobby Pins crochet pattern is so cute. The pattern is well written and easy to follow. I like that she uses a glue stick to stick on different jems beads to add more sparkle to these cute butterflys. I can see these done in many colors to use as bobby pins or put on hats or scarfs. The ideas are endless. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

This is such a simple but cute butterfly and could be used for a range of different things such as putting on a headband, brooch or applique on clothes. The instructions are simple to follow and there are images to help. Once the crochet is complete it looks like a flower shape which could be used on its own as well as the fold into a butterfly. I have also follwed this using 4 ply yarn and a larger hook and it worked out equally well as I wanted it slightly bigger to add to a headband. Thanks for the pattern share.

Thank you for the link, how simple.

Okay I like this but one what is a magic loop and how many chains do you make to for the circle?

Lovely pattern for a butterfly. I have been making butterflies this same way for 25 - 30 years. It's so simple. The bigger the thread/yarn, the bigger the butterfly. Thanks for sharing!

what is a "magic loop"?? I'm new to crocheting!

Thank you so much for this wonderful idea. I have lots of leftover embroidery silks and this is perfect for using them up.

"Magic loop"??? what does that mean? I have crocheted for years... meant to be just a "pun on words" as the butterfly is "magical" ??

In the upper right corner in the window that says search look for "Magic loop", and check this one "How To Make A Magic Loop And Double Ring For Amigurumi" Or go to YouTube and look for it.

Goldi PA Feb. 10, 2013 I love the pattern, but have a few questions. If using embroidery floss, how many strands do you use - 3 or 6 or what? Also, may crochet cotton size 5 or 10 be used instead? I want to make these for my nieces and granddaughter. Thank you.

Cynthia and Edna, try copy and paste to a word document. That's what I usually do, then I put the doc in a crochet folder for future use. :)

I am with Cynthia, lovely pattern how can I print it? I don't crochet at my computer.

I just copy and paste it in my Word program... works for me.. even the pictures are copied and pasted. Then if I have things that didn't need to go there I just delete it.

How can I print this so I can keep it on file for a future project.

right click on the pattern page and click on print. Works for me every time.

This is the cutest idea I've seen in a long time. Easy and my girls loved them.
