After a quick translation into U.S. terms I am running to get my hook and yarn. Thanks for the wonderful pattern! Off I go.....


So pretty and an inspiration!!
You’ve successfully created another beautiful combination of color and design!!


A kaleidoscope of butterflies, how perfect. You've made a beautiful job of them, they really are a delight. And I'm always thrilled when I see them about. You've picked a good year to create them, there seem to be lots around. I shall look forward very much to seeing them gathering ready for Yarndale. CJ xx

Just gorgeous - it seems ages since I have been near a hook or knitting needles but I can feel my creativity returning now we are moved and settled. I may have to attempt some butterflies :)


Wow! I HAVE to make some of these! Then I just need to think of ways to use them. Bunting sounds fun. Maybe pencil toppers and hair slides too?

Love these...well done.


What a wonderful post. I always enjoy your posts, but this one is a stand-out - great idea, great colors, good information. You are a crochet treasure, Lucy.


Gorgeous!! I am so excited about this - I’ve was hoping this was the reason why you were making butterflies! Couldn’t see any mention in the Yarndale info (but may have missed it in my excitement) - do you want safety pins stitching on the back to make them easier to display and / or turn them into brooches as we did for the flowers and the hearts in previous years?

Kaleidoscope descibes perfectly what a lot of butterflies look like. Beautiful display, Lucy.


Perfectissimo, Lucy. Inspirational and clever and unique and very kaleidoscopically Lucy, as usual.;-)
Thanks a gazillion! XX
