What size hook are you using?

 

Usually 1.6mm or 1.75mm - I don't know what size it is in US, the same as for doilies :)

Thank you so much for this pattern! :hug I am always looking for small gifts to give. I am going to try it first with size 10 cotton and about a 9 or 10 size hook. Or maybe size 20 thread and a 14 hook. I will let you know what I come up with. :hook

I love them. They are so lovely. I even printed out your kindly-shared pattern. I have been trying not to add anything new to my long list of must-do's.

They are so beautiful! I've never crocheted with thread, but DGS #1's mom loves butterflies, and she loves to read, so I guess I will try to make her one for Christmas. Thank you for sharing this lovely pattern.

Now that I have made your butterfly, I have to Thank You again. I made it in baby yarn, as I have been looking for a butterfly pattern that would look good as an applique on baby things. Your pattern is not only lovely, it is easy and just what I have been looking for. Thank you for your skill and sharing.

This butterfly bookmark is very sweet - and a really good present for friends.

Thank you, that you made your description also in a picture, because my english is

not so good - but I'm learning :-)

kind regards from germany :-)

I am really happy that so many people could use this butterfly pattern in so many ways!

 

I just wanted to show you what I made a few days ago :) I needed some orange jewelery for a few girls and my first thought was: BUTTERFLIES! So I made 11 pairs of earrings, using the pattern for a small butterfly bookmark. Here they come!

I made these back in October for my 13 year old daughter's birthday party ......BUT most of her friends got sick before the party and so we didn't have a party.

 

A few days later I packed up the bookmarks (enough for all her friends-- made in all colors) and packed them in her lunch......she and them were so surprised to get them and they loved them. Several teachers loved them too so I was asked to make a few for the teachers too---:hook

theyre lovely! I had a go at one myself, but I used a 2mm hook and 4ply cotton. Its about 10cm across, but lovely for my little one :)

 

I also edged it in gold thread. Its not as nice as yours, but for a decorative feature for a 1yo's room, it does the job.

 

Youre very talented!

Apak,

 

These are so pretty! Thanks for sharing the pattern. I don't know what the 3D version looked like, but I really like this flat version.

 

By the way, I clicked on your Polish craft web link and ooooohhhhhh! So many beautiful magazine crochet patterns!! I was in Polish heaven :c9 for a while (even though I don't speak Polish). :shrug

 

Thankfully Google authomatically translates all other-language pages for me so I could sorta kinda figure out what was going on. Except! As I clicked away on what I thought were more purty pictures :think I clicked a couple of buttons that didn't translate and I think I might have put several into a shopping cart because I saw a number under the little shopping cart icon but I wasn't sure those were mine and was too afraid to look! :eek I didn't know how to get them out of there if they were mine, and I was really afraid that if I punched any more buttons I'd end up buying $200 worth of doily patterns and Polish craft magazines (with $10,000 in postage and handling from Poland to the US)!! :help

 

So regretfully but very quickly I exited out :lookout for a while and hopefully their computer will cancel my "transaction". I saved their URL so I will sneak back in when I think it is safe! :elle:lol

I think in this instance it stands for picot.

The "ch4, sl st in 4th chain makes the picot.

Hope this helps. :hook
