How To Crochet A Butterfly Amigurumi Cuddler Pillow, Complete With Rosy Kawaii Cheeks And Smile! Our Free Butterfly Crochet Pattern Works Up Quickly!
Hi friend! We’re excited to share our Butterfly crochet pattern Kawaii Cuddler® with you!
Here are some fun facts we found about butterflies while researching our pattern:
- Butterfly wings are covered by thousands of tiny scales, and these scales reflect light in different colors. But underneath all of those scales, a butterfly wing is actually formed by layers of chitin—the same protein that makes up an insect’s exoskeleton. These layers are so thin you can see right through them. As the butterfly ages, scales fall off the wings, leaving spots of transparency where the chitin layer is exposed.
- Butterflies have taste receptors on their feet to help them find their host plants and locate food.
- Butterflies need an ideal body temperature of about 85 degrees Fahrenheit to fly. Since they’re cold-blooded animals, they can’t regulate their own body temperatures. As a result, the surrounding air temperature has a big impact on their ability to function. If the air temperature falls below 55 degrees Fahrenheit, butterflies are rendered immobile—unable to flee from predators or feed. When air temperatures range between 82 and 100 degrees Fahrenheit, butterflies can fly with ease. Cooler days require a butterfly to warm up its flight muscles, either by shivering or basking in the sun.
This is a beginner level pattern. Our finished Butterfly project is 11″ x 10″ using the recommended hook size. You are welcome to go up or down a hook size to create a different dimension. You can even hold two pieces of yarn together with a larger hook to create a giant cuddler. The sky is the limit!
If you’ve never worked one of our Kawaii Cuddler™ patterns, they are geared towards beginners. You will work two flat pieces and single crochet them together to finish the piece. Even if you’ve never been able to crochet from a pattern before, we’re confident you can create with a 3amgracedesigns pattern. We encourage you to join our Facebook Group where we remain active helping with questions! We love passing our love for the craft on to others!
We hope you enjoy making your very own Butterfly! We can’t wait to see your creativity. When you complete one, please post it in our Facebook group or tag us on Instagram #3amgracedesigns. We love seeing your work!
