BUTTERFLY MAGNETS PATTERN

Hi and welcome to my blog my craft loving
friends and visitors.
Thank you for all the comments on the 
butterflies.
Here is the pattern for those of you that wanted
it. I'm no pattern expert so I do hope you can understand my ramblings as the great Sue P 
would say.

With double knitting wool and a crochet hook
make 15 chain sts.
Join the chain together.
1st Row.
Make 3 triple crochet sts and 4 chain sts between
each of the 3 triple crochet sts. Continue like
this till you have 8 sets of these in the circle.
2nd Row.
Make 3 triple crochet sts into where you have
the chan, then 4 chain sts, and 3 more triple
crochet sts all in the same hole.
Carry on like this till you have gone right 
round.
3rd Row.
Into the chain if the last row, make 8 triple
crochet sts then do  one double crochet st
between the chains. this gives you the
scolloped edge.
Now when you look at your finished circle
it looks like a lovely doily or flower.
Fold in half so you have 2 scollops either
side. put you pipe cleaner round and twist 
for the antenna. I added a couple of beads
for the end.
I do hope you can follow my poor tutorial
of this.
These are the butterflies.


Thank you again for your visit.
I hope you have a really great crafty day.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.
