I have designed this pattern mainly for my own pleasure. My very first pattern design was my monarch caterpillar, and since then I have had in mind to design a butterfly to accompany it. Even I, with my love of the little and fiddly, think that this is quite tricky. Do not even think about it unless you like doing a little bit of embroidery, and are up for a challenge. But I do think the finished result is beautiful. Some patterns say that you should not sell the finished product, but I think that as it is your make, you should feel free to do whatever you wish. For myself, I intend to keep my butterfly. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knitting and Embroidery SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Finished butterfly life-sized - approx 3.5 inches across

Supplies Needed

  • 4ply wool - red and black
  • Knitting needles (UK 2-3, USA 0 or 2mm)
  • wadding

The inspiration for my knitting patterns often comes from nature. I love little knitting projects, and try my hardest to be realistic with my plant and animal designs. Often my projects start from something very personal: my own house or my husband's first car. Then I develop them into something that I think will be appealing. I live on the outskirts of London, and work part-time at a local school. My own children are always doing something creative. At school I love the days when we get really messy.
