Ellie the butterfly amigurumi crochet free pattern

Hello dear friends. Today I will share a very cute amigurumi butterfly pattern. This butterfly pattern is completely free. I hope you will like it. Butterfly amigurumi patterns are actually not very popular. However, people have been looking for different amigurumi models lately. Amigurumi patterns such as bunny and teddy bear are now becoming commonplace. Today you will learn step by step how to crochet. You will see the materials used in the description section. After preparing the necessary materials, it is ready to start. Then, let’s work with butterfly amigurumi crochet. You can see how to proceed step by step.

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.

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

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 ().
