This crochet top happened as a freestyle crochet piece while trying to relax over the Christmas holiday. My nephew pointed out to me it looked like a butterfly in the middle, thus the butterfly in the flower name. As you can see from the video below, my parrot Jupiter is eager to help. He is very well behaved in this video. More often than not he grabs the crochet hook and flies away with it! He is very cheeky like that. My other parrot Neptune enjoyed being a fashionista as you can see in the picture below.

Round 13: Sl st in every sts across EXCEPT middle htr in 3-htr group: in middle htr crochet 1 picot.
Round 14: Continue on petal made row 9 and 10. *1 sl st to middle htr in 3-htr group: Ch 10, 8 dc in 2nd ch from hook, sk 1 ch, 1 dc in next ch, sk 1 ch, 3 dc in next ch, 1 sl st in 1st dc in 8-dc group, 1 sl st in rest of ch back to petal*, repeat between ** across. This makes little mini-petals that will be used both to create wonderful decoration and also to attach front and back to each other as described below.
Attach as follows. Stitch 3 of the mini-petals per side as shoulder straps. The fourth will be under the arm and thus created an armhole. Attach with 5 ch. On one side you attach the 5 ch with sl st on opposite mini-petal, then turn and dc across the foundation chain back to the mini-petal and end with sl st. On the other side you ch 5, turn and dc back to mini-petal over the cord. Do not attach 5 ch to other mini-petal opposite side. End with sl st. One side will be attached with buttons. Continue attaching mini-petals to opposite petals with either buttons or sl st until the waist. Leave remaining petals. In the picture above I have attached 3 mini-petals as shoulder straps and 2 petals below arm. The rest of the mini-petals are left as decoration.
Picture below is the diagram. O is sc +bobble stitch + sl st, and X is sc. Each bobble stitch on hairpin starts with a sc, bobble stitch (ch 3 + 4 tr tog), sl st in bottom of bobble stitch. Every 3 loops are crochet together with sc + bobble st + sc. In the end you have 36 loops each side. 12 x 3-loops together. Remove work from heirloom.
