I loved reading your post. Thanks for making my day.


I almost fell over laughing at how easy your flower folded in half actually turned into a butterfly! Now that's what I call creative! Now to google my location to match the local butterflies! Thanks!


Wonderful content as always. Particularly love the way you’ve arranged the butterflies in the last photo. So pretty and inspiring. What a wonderful way to support the local charity. Heading over to your butterfly pattern page now...


I too have found myself compulsively crocheting butterflies this past year. This is the pattern I've been using, with embroidery floss or multicolored fine crochet cotton: https://forum.crochetville.com/topic/105231-butterfly-bookmarks/

Thank you for this post with other patterns to try!

Dear Wonderful Lucy,
I love your butterflies and am so excited that you have taken the time to make them look like REAL butterflies!!
Also, I click on the link to Yarndale Butterflies and Pioneer Projects! How absolutely fantastic! AND that the butterflies will be used in the Comfort bags, that is just such a wonderful project.
Getting my stuff together now and I will TRY MY BEST to make some butterflies!
Once again, wonderful!


Oh so lovely! Love your blog :)
Greeting from Titti


Hi Lucy
Just seen this and thought of you!

You can even download a free chart 😀


What happened to the pictures of the Yarndale hearts last year, that were to be posted on pinterest after the event? Did I miss them? I always love looking at what other people have made up close, like with the sheep the year before, as I don't attend the event. Can anyone tell me where to look? Thanks.

Hi Lucy, Am I able to add photos to these comments so I could show you what I ave done?

I love these butterflies! I am a great fan of your blog and you have inspired me back to crocheting that I have not done since the 70's!! I have just finished a granny square blanket for my sofa starting with the basic squares and soon found that I could design my own and add flowers to the centres. I have also made 2 mandalas from your pattern in different colours. I am going to add feathers to one to make a dream catcher. Thank you and keep on blogging please.

I have been looking for an inspiring way to use up all my tiny balls of yarn, and I've found it! What lovely butterflies! I've tried the folding ones and am not keen, so off I go making single-layer ones. The The Yarndale project is a great idea.

Hi Lucy! I just love them! I volunteer in a butterfly habitat at Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens. They would be a lovely token to share with visitors there. You have recharged my creativity once again! I've already made three from my scrap yarn. Thanks again. Have fun at Yarndale...I live vicariously through your posts about it...sounds wonderful!


Love these little beauties! Would love the bowl pattern that you were talking about felting, I love felting and am eager to try your bowl. Thanks

Mavis robinson

I would love to know where to get these patterns please..


Oh, I wish you lots of energy and fun for the coming weeks to have another good Yarndale!!!
