One of my favorite yarn shops, The Wool Bar, is asking for peeps to make butterflies for Breast Cancer Care Support.
Such an amazing idea – I couldn’t resist joining in!
Jane, who writes The Wool Bars “Hot off the Hook” blog, has even posted a fab crochet pattern on the web page to help.
The butterflies are great fun to make. It feels like a bit of an origami exercise as your butterfly first looks like this fabulous flower.
To which you add the your flower stamen (ie, butterflies antennae).
Before you fold your flower (butterfly) in half to form the butterfly shape.
The wings are slip stitched together along the outside edge.
So beautiful – I had to make a friend.
The name of our Breast Cancer support group is Cassia which is the name of a butterfly
That’s a beautiful name. X
Those are great! I must have a go – thank you for the clear photographs as I suspect the written instructions could be a bit puzzling the first time around.
