Say goodbye to Old Man Winter and hello to Spring with this easy crochet butterfly applique!

It’s perfect for beginners and a quick yarn project to keep you company while watching TV at night.

With this free crochet pattern, you can whip up a dozen butterflies before your favorite television show is over!beginner crochet project butterfly applique free crochet pattern

Unlike a lot of crochet patterns, the easy crochet butterfly doesn’t take a lot of yarn.

Love that! It’s especially good news if you have a big bag of leftover yarn scraps from other knitting or crochet projects.

It also makes this free crochet pattern ideal for using in schools or assisted living communities when you volunteer, as most times the yarn is donated in odd quantities and there’s never quite enough to complete a full project.

For this easy crochet pattern it doesn’t matter if the yarn is the same throughout, because every butterfly is beautifully unique.

Need a quick Easter basket filler or Mother’s Day gift? Crochet a few of these up to give as gifts. Stick a strip magnet on the back of the finished crochet butterfly for a quick refrigerator display.

Or, if you’re giving the butterfly to a little girl, slide a hair clip into the back loops of the butterfly and you have an instant hair accessory.

Tie a thick ribbon tail to the end and a fun, spring bookmark is ready to mark the pages of your favorite book! There’s no end to the number of ways that you can transform this easy and free crochet pattern into a functional craft that is treasured for years to come.
