Chie...Here in Brazil crochet is very popular, I have a grou in Yahoo called "amocrocheembarbante"
that means: I love twine's crochet, understand?
That because it is rustic and for me, more beautiful.

Those butterflies are so very cute that I had to make up a bunch and turn them into Easter cards...

Chie - my mother asked me to crochet a lot of little butterflies to attach to the baby blanket she crocheted for my little niece, and I was SOOOO happy when I found your pattern! All the other butterfly patterns out there are bulky, big, and not all that cute (require crocheting a round and then folding it in half). Yours are perfect, and they whip up in no time at all! Thanks SO much for sharing your patterns with all us folks through the internet, it's a gift! Little Alexandra will love them!

I adore this butterfly pattern, thank you for sharing it. I loop a black little chain to form a body tie a knot for the head and leave enough of the ends to form atenas. Love them !

Thanks for the pattern. I used the magic ring and in one pull after crocheting the stitches there was a butterfly!
