[Crochet] How to crochet the 3 dimensional butterfly application.

Hi, friends.

It is not the typical flat crochet motif. It is basically an 8 petaled flower folded in half. This allows for more structure and a 3 dimensional look to the butterfly. Add them to blankets, pillows, baby booties or anything else you want.

Today I’m sharing this free tutorial.




Materials and tools that you needed for making butterfly application:

- Thin weight yarn of your choice (white, pink, green).
- Size 1,25 mm Crochet Hook.
- Scissors.

Use a smaller hook for a smaller application.





Basic Stitch Abbreviations:

Chain - ch.
Slip stitch - sl st.
Single crochet - sc.
Double crochet - dc.
Chain space - ch sp.


Pattern instructions:


1 step. Make ch 5 and 1 sl st in the first ch to join.



2 step. Make ch 3 and cluster *ch 2, 2 dc*. Repeat cluster ** 7 times yet. At the end of the row make ch 2, 1 dc and 1 sl st in 3rd ch. Finish.



3 step. Change color of yarn (white). Make 1 sl st in 2 ch space, ch 3, 2 dc, 3 ch anв 3 вс шт same 2 ch space. In each of next 2 ch spaces make cluster - 3 dc, 3 ch, 3 dc. At the end of the row make 1 sl st in 3rd ch.



4 step. Change color of yarn (pink). Insert the hook between the third and fourth dc of the previous row. Make 1 sl st with pink yarn, ch 1, 1 sc in same space. In 3 ch sp make cluster - 6 dc, 1 ch, 6 dc, 1 sc in next space between the third and fourth dc of the previous row. Repeat the cluster around. At the end of the row make 1 sl st in the top of the first sc.



5 step. Fold the part in half. Connect the two halves at the bottom.




6 step. Take green yarn. Make on the hook first ch.



7 step. Insert the hook into the base of the part (the junction of the two halves). Grab the thread and pull it through the part and loop on the hook.



8 step. Make similar loops to create a butterfly trunk.



9 step. Make tendrils. Make ch 7.



10 step. Skip first ch, in next ch make 2 sc, in each of next ch make sl st. At the end make 7 ch, skip first ch, in next ch make 2 sc, in each of next ch make sl st.


The 3 dimensional butterfly application is now ready!
