Olen innostunut nyt virkkaamaan perhosia. Ohjekin on aika helppo.
I have been interested in crochet some butterflies. The pattern is quite easy.
Make a magic ring, that is yarn two times around your finger and make your first chain (ch)
Make 2-3 ch more. This counts as first half douple croched (hdc).
Make two hdc, ch on magic ring to form your first group of 3 hdc. *3 hdc, ch* around the ring until there are 8 sets of 3hdc, ch.
Slip stitch (sl st) at last ch into top of the first 3 ch to close the circle.
Sl st across top of first set of 3 hdc to first space between sets. Make 3 ch.
Make 2 hdc, ch, 3 hdc. Your first set is ready.
Make * 3hdc, ch, 3 hdc* in next space. Repeat ** in each of next 6 spaces. You'll have 8 sets again.
sl st last ch into top of the original 3 ch to close the ring. Sl st across top of the first 3 hdc to first space. Make 3 hc.
Make 7 hdc, ch. Make a single crochet (sc) to next space.
*ch, 8 hdc, ch, sc* to next spaces, until you have 8 sets. End with a sl st into first 3 ch. Finnish off.
Taita perhonen kaksinkerroin, oikea puoli päällepäin.
Taita piipunrassi (noin 10cm) puoliksi. Laita piipunrassi perhosen "keskelle" ja kieputa pään kohdalta pari kertaa ympäri.
Fold butterfly in half, right side showing.
Fold chenille wired stem in half and loop over center of butterfly. Twist to fasten, shaping ends on top as antennae.
Pari jo valmiina!
Couple are ready yet!
