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.

Due to their multitude of colors, butterfles are a very gratious crocheting motif. We have prepared two tutorials and a pattern of various butterflies. While the first video is not in English, we present it here because of the very interesting and eye-catching effect of turning a crocheted flower into a 3D butterfly form. The first butterfly motif starts out as an 8-petalled flower, which is folded in half, yielding a 3D effect. If you prefer flat pattern, please follow our second tutorial or the pattern.The link to the video tutorials and free pattern are below.
