  1. Oh, I've been wondering about how to do this!
    Thanks for the pattern! :)

  2. I'm new to crocheting and I love your butterfly pattern. I just don't know where I'm supposed to repeat from. thanks for your help!

    1. Hey Somer! When you get to the end of a sentence and it says *repeat you need to repeat from the start of the sentence once :) Hope this helps! Xx

  3. In the first part of the pattern, it says double treble/triple. I know how to do both, but I'm not positive which one I need to do, since in US terms, a double is a UK treble. Or vice versa. I don't remember which. haha

  4. Thank you for your helpfull pattern. Easy and cute.

  5. Thank you for this easy pattern. I will be making these for Threads of Love Society for the memory boxes for the parents who have lost their little ones.

  6. What kind of dental floss did you use? I've checked at Joan's and MIchael's and they could not help. Can you suggest a store or website where this floss can be found? thanks

  7. It looks like embroidery thread to me. Another name would be floss in some circles.

  8. Precious little butterflies! Can't wait to start one!

  9. Soooo cute. I would probably use metallic gold for the body and antenna. Or some could be silver.
