Tried and Tested Tip Number 26 [2D Crochet Butterfly]

So, to continue along the butterfly theme I began in my last Tried and Tested Tip, the 3D Crochet Butterfly, I present the 2D Crochet Butterfly by The Left Side of Crochet!

If you thought the 3D pattern was quick, just wait until you try this! It produces a very similar looking butterfly, but with only one set of wings (hence the 2D rather than the 3D), but it's twice as quick and just as effective!

I've managed to knock 29 of these up over the past couple of weeks, and it is a lovely rhythmical pattern to settle in to, with very little faffing around sewing in ends either! With just a few rounds, the pattern is easy to memorise, but also forgiving if the odd stitch isn't quite right...

I made these all on a 4mm hook, but with a variety of wools from my stash - hence the various sizes! They also look lovely with a contrasting wool used for the final row.

I really recommend the pattern, and these butterflies make a lovely addition to many a project.

But now these butterflies must flutter off, and join with dozens more butterflies to create something which is set to be rather spectacular :)
