The business cards I use for Cara's Handcrafted Crocheted Ornaments have a lovely purple butterfly logo on them which I wished to recreate in crochet. These fun little pieces would look great hanging in a window as a suncatcher ornament, or dangling from a mobile or a windchime. Butterfly can also be used as an applique to dress up a plain t-shirt or sweatshirt. The pattern can be made with multiple sizes of crochet thread or even yarn for different sizes, and there is an optional 'ruffly edge' variation given to experiment with. Try these in solid colors and in the lovely variegated color-changing threads. This pattern uses some advanced stitches, and there are links to some great instructional videos to help. I also include numerous photos to help sort out any possible confusion as to where stitches are placed. All of the patterns found on Craftsy are available for instant download only. Once you have purchased a pattern it will be immediately added to your Craftsy account where you will have the ability to download it.

~Heritage Heartcraft, heirloom quality thread crochet by Cara Louise Reitbauer~ I have been crocheting since about 1974 at age 8 when my mother taught me with regular yarn and larger crochet hooks. A year or so later, she found a bag that had been her mother's which contained some gorgeous doilies her mother had made, along with some skinny crochet thread and some impossibly small steel crochet hooks. I fell in love on the spot, created my very first doily without any pattern by copying one of hers, using her hooks and her thread. I have been designing and crafting small articles such as doilies, coasters, snowflakes and angels ever since! (Although I do confess to using patterns too!) Every time I make something I feel a kinship with the grandmother I was never able to meet, and so her spirit is alive in me- all these years later, and still use her hooks, which are now over 60 years old! I've got sites all over the web!
