I found images of some totally cute crochet butterfly (rattle)… and free patterns that are similar on hobbii.dk / hobbii.com and amigurumi.today (and these ones in danish opskrift på hæklede insekter/bricksite.com), that I used as inspiration to do the pattern.
When I found the images, I wanted to make some but I could not find the pattern for them… I looked and searched… but no luck (at the time)!
So I had to figure out the pattern myself.. it went ok… if I say so myself…
The original pattern/image that I found is much cuter and I just couldn’t figure out how to make it as cute. My version is just a sad little thing compared to the pattern I wanted. But luckily the baby’s that got them don’t care.
Here bellow you can see that at this point I was still working on the pattern as there were some details I did not think were good enough… And the mouth I need to learn to do better!
I will get there…
This is the second version of the pattern and I like it so far, the butterfly/bumblebee is not big but has the perfect size for a very little one.
You can find the pattern, along with other free patterns, in English in the free pattern section.
Later I found the original pattern for sale here.
