The butterfly has become a metaphor for transformation and hope. Butterflies represent positive changes and are seen as a sign of brave forces watching over you, ensuring graceful transitions. These magnificent creatures are regarded as messengers of God or angels that have come to earth to help humans with their spiritual journey.

The pattern BUTTERFLY DANCE is worked in rounds from center out. You can use it to create blankets, bags, pillow covers, garments and much more. You can either use the complete design or part of it for smaller size (21 rounds) squares without the butterflies to create a project with a totally different look.

Butterfly Dance

I give Butterfly Dance 5 stars though I have not started on it yet, but simply because it is such a beautiful design and I love blue and white patterns. It is on top of my to-do list. At the moment I am still working on the Mosaic blanket, using my "Sahara" colours, light yellow to light rust and darker rust to brown all in Merino 5 ply wool.
I had some trouble in the beginning with reading the pattern, but the penny has dropped and I find it as easy as all the other crocheters.I have ordered some more of your beautiful patterns, but being 79 now, I might not be able to do them all. Though simply look at them gives me pleasure. Kind regards Rosemarie MacDonald
