Butterfly Amigurumi Free Pattern

Hello dear amigurumi lovers,

Today we share one free amigurumi crochet pattern again for you. As you know we share new amigurumi free patterns every day. The main crochets are amigurumi gazelles, amigurumi bears, amigurumi pola, amigurumi pandas, amigurumi penguins, amigurumi giraffes, amigurumi llama, amigurumi pigs, amigurumi bunny, amigurumi clowns, amigurumi lambs, amigurumi bees, amigurumi unicorns, amigurumi dolls, amigurumi foxes, amigurumi penguins, amigurumi dinosaurs, amigurumi elephants, amigurumi hippos, amigurumi monkeys, amigurumi cats, amigurumi dogs and more …

How would you like to meet this cute friend butterfly today? I am sharing this free pattern, which is very easy to make. This pattern is written using US terminology and is worked in continuous rounds unless otherwise stated. I recommend you always mark the start of each round, using a stitch marker. If made with the described materials, the toy will be about 13cm / 5.1 inches tall, from the tip of the antennas to the bottom.

I would like to thank Ana Veiga, the real owner of this free amigurumi pattern. You can find other free amigurumi patterns on our site here. Let’s start 🙂

Butterfly Amigurumi Pattern Instructions

Materials

  • Worsted Yarn (I used DROPS ♥ You #8 in light lilac and grey, as well as old pink for the embroidery). One ball of each color should be enough.
  • Crochet hook (I used 2.5mm).
  • Stuffing
  • Black embroidery thread
  • Embroidery/tapestry needle
  • Stitch markers

Abbreviations

  • st= stitch
  • ch= chain
  • sc= single crochet
  • hd= half double crochet
  • dc= double crochet
  • tr= treble crochet
  • sltl= slip stitch
  • inc= increase (2 sc in same st)
  • dc= invisible decrease
  • rnd= round

Note about color changes

When the pattern indicates a color change, it’s important to remember that the yarn change starts one stitch earlier: in the stitch before the color change, insert hook, yarn over and pull loop through stitch using the old color; then yarn over in the new color and pull loop through both loops on hook. The yarn of the color you aren’t using is carried from behind. Color changes are indicated by the new color inside parentheses ().
