Crochet butterfly applique – a free pattern
Spring is here! Finally, the trees are green again, the first flowers bloom and nature comes back to life. A symbol that I always associated with the spring is the butterfly. Therefore, I designed a crocheted butterfly applique. I hope you like this free crochet pattern.
The butterfly crochet applique is made in two steps. The wings are crocheted in rounds and the body consists of only a few stitches. Those beautiful animals are crocheted really quickly and the applique is simple and decoraive.

This little crochet applique can be used for many things. Butterflies as table decoration, invitation cards and embellishment (for example on T-shirts). They are especially nice in the spring, although those beautiful, shimmering creatures fly all summer long.
PS: As you can see you can as well vary the butterflies quite easily. I like it best with large wings on the top. What do you think?
