Marie's making: Crochet Butterfly Pattern

At yesterday's craft morning I taught the butterfly, everyone seemed to really enjoy it and so I thought I would write out a really clear pattern with photos for it, as I didn't manage to find a proper one online. Enjoy :) You can use any yarn and needle you like. For this I have used a single ply merino wool and a 1.75 needle. Abbreviations:Chain (ch)Double Crochet (dc)Treble (tr) This pattern is written using UK crochet terms.

In this tutorial I will demonstrate the method I developed for sewing pieces together neatly, with an almost invisible join. Both pieces are usually the same colour, but, for the purpose of this tutorial, I will be joining an open-ended brown piece (right) to a closed grey piece (left): Carinas Craftblog: Granny square joining tutorial - StumbleUpon Just a warning before we get started with the tutorial, there's LOTS of pictures and I may go into too much detail, but that's just what I do. ;-) By the way, this is the yarn I use.
