Butterfly of Hope Square (8"h x 8"w inches)

Recommended Posts

Hi, I didn't think there was enough Butterfly Squares out there :D , so I decided to come up with a couple. :yes This square and the Cabled Butterfly Square end with the same amount of stitches, for easier sewing. I wanted these two squares to coordinate well with each other.

This square can be enlarged to any size after Rnd 8, because after Rnd 8 you can work it like you would for a traditional granny square.

Please send me a pm if you find any errors. :hook

(124sc, 4-ch2 spaces)

Finish off and weave in ends.

Butterfly’s Body: Cut a piece of black yarn measuring 13” to 14” inches. Insert hook in one of the first ch3 spaces made in pattern, fold piece of yarn in half over hook, pull up a loop, insert hook in hole from starting, yarn over, with loose pieces of yarn, pull up a loop, pull loop thru loop on hook, insert hook in ch3 space above you, yarn over with loose pieces of yarn, pull up a loop, pull loop thru loop on hook, yarn over, pull loose yarn thru loop on hook, pull taut.

The 2 pieces of yarn will be you antennas. To hold these down, first I figured out how far I wanted them apart, then I thread each piece of yarn thru a sc so its on the wrong side of the square, the I knot the two pieces of yarn together being careful not to tie them to tightly (Don’t want the sc to bunch).



 

Enjoy!!!!
