Description

SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Aunt Lydia's® Classic Crochet Thread size 10: 1 ball Aqua
  • Crochet hook: 1.4 mm [US 8] steel hook
  • Tapestry needle
  • Tape measure
  • Scissors

GAUGE:

11 sts = 1" (3 cm); 4 rows = 1" (3 cm) in dc. CHECK YOUR GAUGE. Use any size hook to obtain the gauge.

SPECIAL ABBREVIATION:
dc3tog: *Yarn over, insert hook in next st, yarn over, draw yarn through st, yarn over, draw yarn through 2 loops on hook; repeat from * twice, yarn over, draw yarn through 4 loops on hook.

HOW TO READ PATTERN:
Each solid square is equal to a “block” of “dc in next dc, dc in next 2 sts or ch-2 space, dc in next dc”. Each open square is equal to a “space” of “dc, ch 2, skip next 2 sts, dc.” The dc at the end of each square also counts as the first dc of the next block or space. For example, a block followed by a space = dc in next 4 sts, ch 2, skip next 2 sts, dc in next dc.
Bookmark measures approximately 2-1/4" (6 cm) wide by 6-1/4" (16 cm) long. Butterfly measures 2-1/4" (6 cm) wide by 1-1/4" (3 cm) tall.
