Karen from Karen’s Yarn Paper Scissors in Batavia NY (39 Jackson St) posted this up on facebook…remember.. you just liked her page!

I fell in love, and some of you did too.

She wrote me, “I don’t know where it {the pattern} originated from. I have known it forever…my nana taught it to me when i was is my teens and i am now 50. :-) . What I do know about is that it is called either a butterfly or bowtie patttern and i have seen it in a single pattern as i did or a double pattern where there are two butterflies. I am giving you the pattern for the single. As follows:

1: ch 16, dc in third ch from hook, dc in all across, turn. OR. Ch 16 dc in third ch from hook dc two more times sk 8 st, dc in next 3 dc, turn
First one gives a solid base foundation and second gives bottom of butterfly. I use second.
2. Ch 2, dc in next 2 st, ch 8 , dc in next 3, turn
3. Ch 2, dc in next 2 st, ch 8, dc in next 3, turn
4. Ch 2, dc in next 2 st, ch 8, dc in next 3′ turn
5. Ch 2, dc in next 2, ch 4, sc around rows 2,3,4, ch 4, dc in next 3, turn
6. Repeat rows 2-5 until desired length


To end end with row 5. Or a row of solid dc if you started with a row of solid dc
Cool eh? Well you can grab a 5.5 crochet hook and a ball or two of this yarn and make your very own! enjoy!


Love to you all,
