Betty the Butterfly
This pattern will be available as a free Crochet-a-Long (CAL) starting March 4th, 2023. Check out the pattern links and release dates here.
Betty the Butterfly is an amigurumi insect doll that works up quickly and easily! She’s cute and pocket-sized at 4 inches in height. Use thinner yarn to make a keychain version, or thick and chunky yarn (such as super bulky velvet or blanket yarn) to make a bigger plush! This beautiful butterfly can be easily customized with different yarn colors and fibers, and would look adorable with embellishments such as buttons, bows, bow ties, flowers, or other appliques. Betty the Butterfly makes a great birthday or holiday gift!
The PDF pattern includes a printable coloring sheet to help you design/plan out your butterfly’s colors. It also includes full written instructions and links to the complete step-by-step video tutorial.
