Olivia Butterfly Motif
Here is a lovely butterfly for you to crochet! Worked in one piece in the Irish Crochet tradition, but with totally modern language and clear, specific directions, it is elaborate, but not difficult. The result is well-worth the hour it might take you to make! You could sew it onto something as an applique, or crochet it into a lacy piece, or attach a chain or cord to the tops of the wings and wear it as a necklace! I made this one with fingering weight handspun silk yarn, but you can use anything, and make it in any size you'd like. Mine is about 3.5" wide. Enjoy!
