Creation Challenge 5: Butterflies #1: Butterfly Patterns

My latest creations are butterflies and when I posted it to the site, meanjaws suggested that we create variations of the pattern. That would be SO much fun! I absolutely love the idea. So here we go!

1. The Inspiration

2. The Pattern
The pattern that I began with is here, video by Maggie’s Crochet… Part I and "Part II ":

This is where we will begin but butterflies is the topic and any pattern will do. Please find/write/share patterns and pattern links in the comments below.

NOTE: if you use someone’s pattern, please give the credit and provide a link to their site. Thank-you.

3. The Variations
For me, once I tried the pattern, I then created my own variation of it, with different stitches and different colours etc. Be creative and have fun. Oh, and, then, inspire us by sharing your creations in Part 2 of this blog series!

4. And then what?
Oh the possibilities — what can we use our butterflies for? Hmmm.
Please share your ideas and your “butterflies and beyond” creations in Part 3 of this blog series.

Have fun everyone and have fun “transforming” your (caterpillar) yarn into a beautiful butterfly.
