I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

If you like a cornucopia of colors and patterns, look no further than butterflies.

From the common fritillary, to monarchs and gossamer-winged blues, butterflies are some of the most colorful animals on the planet. In fact, they are rivalled in this only by some birds and fish. Therefore, it’s no wonder that there are so many amazing butterfly-themed crochet patterns. However, the acme of these is the standalone crochet butterfly that will grace any item you put it on. Moreover, if you make any of these projects in a large number, you can have your own butterfly swarm to brighten up your home as we head into the fall.

This crochet butterfly is a 3D representation these beautiful insects in all the glory of their colors. Although somewhat stylized, they are beautiful projects that will help you use up yarn ends and experiment with color combinations. The latter is a very useful skill for your other projects as well.
