Crochet a Butterfly Band

Crochet from now on butterflies in a band. For instance, along a blanket edge or replace the Butterfly Band in the โ€œSophieโ€™s Universeโ€ blanket (part 14 of the CAL 2015).

The Butterfly Band was made by me as part of the Sophieโ€™s Universe. Because people liked it, I have written the pattern down. The rounds match the rounds of the Sophieโ€™s Universe, so you lose no stitches or height and can continue with part 15 of the CAL.

I imagine that with some adjustments the Band also can be used in other blankets or as edge on another work.

Behind the butterflies flowers are crocheted, so it looks like they are fluttering above a field of flowers.

I made the band with SMC original Bravo and hook 4, how many skeins you need depends on how large your work or the edging is.

The pattern is available in the pattern section of my blogs in Dutch and English (U.S. terms)
