Butterfly Amigurumi Free Crochet Pattern
I’m in a very summery frame of mind these days. The weather is still pretty cool in my neck of the woods but I seem to be dreaming of summer days already.
I received a request for a butterfly pattern ages ago but it just never felt like the right time to set my mind to designing one until now. When I was at my local Michael’s recently, I saw a display of the Caron Cotton Cakes and it suddenly struck me how fun it would be to use a self-striping yarn in an amigurumi. I thought a butterfly’s wings would be the perfect canvas so it was decided.
Many of my patterns have a lot of colour-work and require a fair amount of tapestry crochet (like, a tonne, if I’m being honest), which can be just what you need when you’re looking for a challenging project that you can really settle into and spend some time on. But…not every project needs to be the most challenging and complicated project you’ve ever worked on. That’s why I decided to make this one a little simpler by not incorporating a tonne of tapestry crochet.
