One-coloured crochet butterfly

Hi everyone!

Remember the multi-coloured crochet butterfly pattern I posted around Easter?

Well, today I’m sharing the pattern for a single-coloured one.

You can uses them as hairpin by attaching a hairpin at the back or as a brooch by sewing on a brooch pin.

I didn’t have the pattern of the one I made years ago but I found this one and this one on Pinterest.

They are great to use up bits and pieces of yarn. Let me know what you think!

Happy crocheting!
