Waking up everyday is a gift. We are blessed to have and enjoy this splendid world. Appreciating every single things is dominant and I always see things beautiful in its own way.
Sometimes it's nice to be like a butterfly. Enchanting, vibrant and free. God gives us enough strength to do what He wants us to do. Blossom like a butterfly.
I decided to make a butterfly crochet. I made it last night. And it is simple yet magical crochet. I made a picture and word tutorial.
I used yarn and 1.5 mm steel hook.
1. Magic ring. 3 Chain Stitches. *Double crochet. Chain 1*. Repeat *-* Until you have 16 Double crochet. For the last DC, slip stitch into 2nd chain stitch of the 3 Chains. Then pull the excess yarn to tighten the circle. Cut excess yarn.
2. *Chain 3. Slip stitch in the space stitch. Chain 7. Slip stitch in the space stitch.* Repeat *-* until you finish the entire circle.
Note: The last 7 chain should be slip stitch in the 1st stitch of the 3 chains.
3. *Slip stitch in the 7 chains. Five Double crochet. 3 chain and slip stitch in the first chain to make a picot stitch. 5 Double crochet*. Repeat *-* until you finish the 8 big petals.
The eight petals are ready. Now, we need to fold the flower in the middle to form the 3D butterfly.
Lastly: For the body and head of the butterfly. Choose different color of yarn. Chain 8. Wrap into the butterfly. Slip stitch into the first stitch. Knot it two times to secure and cut the excess yarns.
