What is your favorite butterfly pattern from the list above? If you were to chose 1 from the list above, what would be your top pick?  Tell me in the comments section below.

As for me, It’s not that easy to decide which one is my favorite. All of them are beautiful but If I really have to choose one. I think I would choose number 13. I like to work with finer yarns and I really like the details on this pattern.

They are all beautiful, I would use the butterflies from 8 to make 13 🙂

I agree, I like #13 best also because I like the fine yarns.

13 is beautiful, but I also like 3 and 4. How do I order these patterns?

It’s nice to see so many people still crochet and tat. My fav is #13, I love to work with fine thread. I would like to make a butterfly shaw by making a large butterfly and then make small butterflies for the arms. I can see it, in what’s left of my mind, almost like when you crochet granny squares and join them to make a sweater.

#7 is a bad link ( Free-Homemade-Gift-Ideas.com). It redirects you to a website that sells gifts. There is nothing free on it.
