3 D Butterfly


This beautiful crochet butterfly calls for a steel hook and lace weight yarn. This would make a great topper for a gift or even just a simple house decoration. A picot stitch is used for this free crochet pattern.

This detailed butterfly is amazing! It is so life like it could land outside my window! I've never tried a picot or a double treble before so I have several things to do before I could crochet at this level. It's good though to have a forward looking project. I think I'd like to make this up placing on the front of one of my greeting cards! Thanks for the free pattern! It's lovely!

What a nice surprise when I opened up the picture of this butterfly. I thought it would be a very basic butterfly. But it wasn't at all. It is a very pretty and detailed one. This pattern will be added to my applique file waiting for the perfect pattern.

This butterfly is a lot smaller than I expected from looking at the photo. It is worked with #10 thread, so that would make sense. The instructions look okay, but could really benefit from some additional photos. I was also a bit confused about the photos that WERE included. I do want to work this pattern up, but will try it with #4 yarn and an I hook as a practice piece.

your patterns are so easy to read and sometimes cant get the patternd thank you barbara

Thank you. This is just what I need to make gifts for my daughter and granddaughter. Everything for them has to be butterflies, since my daughter named her daughter Mariposa. I could see making using these to decorate headbands, pillows, clothing... the ideas just keep coming.

Absolutely beautiful. Almost lifelike...I love them and call them flutterbys Look forward to trying to make 1 of my own. Plan on trying with varigated yarn

I love this little butterfly. I starched mine by spraying with a stiffining spray starch and ironing with a t-shirt over the butterfly. Use a low (nylon) setting on the iron. Do this several times to desired stiffness. I bent the wings up slightly and placed the butterfly wings between two books laying flat. This kept the wings up until the last starching and ironing cooled. I then attached this cute little guy to a small piece of magnet strip. Now I have a lovely group of butterflies floating on my fridge after a long winter.
