Yesterday I crocheted butterflies to decorate the dress of my daughter. She was pleased and I decided to share this crochet butterfly pattern with you too. This can be used not only to decorate clothes, but also as part of the decor of your room or as a magnet on your fridge.
Materials: I used yarn Bamboo (70% bamboo fiber, 30 % cotton, 50 gr/200 m) color pink and black and crochet hooks 2 mm and 1 mm.
CH – chain
SC – single crochet
DC – double crochet
TRC – treble crochet
sl.st. – slip stitch
