I love to use crochet cute little things as accessories. These Cute Butterflies are so incredibly easy to crochet, so I’d like to share this pattern with you today. And moreover - small projects like these are great for using up scrap yarn!

I also love how versatile embellishments are. Whether you want to add a brooch back and create a unique piece of jewellery, add a sweet detail to a scarf or hat. Any other ideas from you? It would be great as an embellishment on a wreath or a wallhanging.  And, of course this crochet butterfly would be lovely as a magnet for your refrigerator.

They’re also perfect for Easter.

TREBLE CROCHET (TR)
A treble crochet (sometimes called triple crochet) is taller than a double crochet and is made by working two yarn overs at the start of the stitch, instead of one yarn over as for double crochet. It is abbreviated tr.

STEP 1: Yarn over twice, insert the hook into the work (fifth chain from hook on the starting chain).

STEP 2: * Yarn over and draw yarn through, pulling up a loop.

STEP 3: Yarn over again and pull yarn through the first two loops only on the hook.
