Add Personality to Your Wardrobe with These Easy Crocheted Butterflies

Make this easy and cute crocheted butterfly, perfect for beginners and guaranteed to give extra flair to your favorite blanket, scarf, or hat! I will give you step-by-step instructions to make butterflies of your own. These crocheted butterflies look like they came from a magazine but are simple enough for even a novice crocheter.

You only need a few items to get started...a medium-sized yarn (I use Red Heart brand) and a 5 mm crocheting hook. I prefer to make butterflies in a variety of colors; if you do too, make sure to have a few yarn colors available to use.

Begin by creating a slip knot, followed by a dime-sized loop. Stitch through the loop. This stitch that you created in the loop will become the base for the first wing. In this video, I begin with the lower wings and end with the top. The bottom wings each have 7 triple crochet stitches, while the top have 5 double crochet stitches. Once the basic butterfly has been made, I will teach you how to crochet the abdomen and antennas of the butterfly and create colorful spots that will make your butterfly unique and beautiful. Lastly, I will show you how to liven up a blanket, scarf, or hat by attaching the butterflies. Hope you enjoy!
