Continue as follows: 28 sc, sl st in 1st sc, (ch 3, sk 2 sc, sl st in next sc) x 9, sl st in 1st ch-3-sp. Continue crochet ch 3, sl st in next ch-3-sp another 4 rounds, sl st in next ch-3-sp.

Round 6: Ch 2, sl st in next ch-3-sp, continue all around, sl st in 1st ch-3-sp. Round 7. Ch 1, sl st in ch-2-sp all around, sl st in 1st ch-2-sp. Round 8. Sl st in each ch-1-sp. Round 9. Ch 2, sl st in sl st directly across.

Twist wings in the way that the two upper small wings are turned facing down. Fold the two upper small wings over the larger wings. With small wings in front of larger wings, stitch to back of the main body.

Wireframe butterfly legs and body. 

Legs. 2 x 7 inches (18 cm) aluminium wire. Wrap around top part and bottom part of body (see image) and secure with 28 gauge copper wire. Wrap yarn around legs.

For the main body, use 2 x 7 inches (18 cm) aluminium wire, next to each other. Attach with 28 gauge copper wire and wrap this wire around the top (about 3 cm down) and bottom (about 2 cm above end) of Aluminium wire. Turn the tip of aluminium wire into a loop to create antennas. Wrap yarn around the main body.

For the legs, use 2 x 5.5 inches (14 cm) aluminium wire and wrap around the body as the picture above shows. Wrap 28 gauge copper wire around legs to tie the legs together. Wrap yarn around legs.

Begin Begin crochet single crochet up the body beginning from bottom of the butterfly. Sc up one leg. Turn, sc in sc down leg, sc up other leg, sc in sc down leg, sc up body, sc up top leg, sc in sc down leg, sc up other leg, sc in sc down leg, sc up body, sc up antenna, sc in sc down antenna, sc up other antenna, sc in sc down antenna, sc in sc down body to legs.

Ch 2, turn, 2 sc in 2nd ch from hook. Sl st in work until you have a round ‘ball’. Sl st to face.

Eyes. 

Wrap black yarn around top of antennas, end of arms, legs, and bottom of body.

Use black yarn and a sewing needle and sl st eyes on butterfly. Thread a white string of yarn across the ‘eyes’ to give the impression of white in eye. ?

Decorate Crochet Butterfly with chunky yarn.

Use chunky yarn in bright colors. In this example, I am using 100 % Acrylic chunky yarn in bright green and bright orange. Thread through ch sps on wings and down side of butterfly. Use green yarn on small wings and orange yarn on big wings. Tie yarn together at bottom side of the butterfly. Tie orange yarn around antennas to give the crochet butterfly a gangster look! ?

Every day, crochet gives my life meaning. I love nature and I love to crochet. ? In the picture above, I am crocheting in the Mount Tambourine waterfalls.
