Crochet Butterflies

I was in a little bit of a crochet rut this week and looking for something inspiring.  Always on a hunt for a way to use the left over bits of yarn I have lying around everywhere.  I came across this post at Marie’s Making Blog where she has the most creative pattern for a crochet butterfly!  It is not the typical flat crochet motif.  It is basically an 8 petaled flower folded in half.  This allows for more structure and a 3 dimensional look to the butterfly.   I LOVE LOVE the idea and started making my tiny balls of yarn scraps disappear right away!  The “antennae” are the perfect finishing touch. 


Here is one with different color combinations

It appears as tho the original blog with tutorial is no longer available.  I will be updating this post with my notes on how to create the original butterfly.  In the meantime there are other blog posts out there with very similar crochet butterflies.  Here is one of those very helpful tutorials at Crochet Dynamite
