How to Crochet the Butterfly Edging

So, now we will crochet a piece of border with butterflies. Such a borfer does not fit in length, but in width. Butterflies work along the edge of a fillet mesh (dc, ch 2). After, separately, you need to make cords from the 25-30 ch, which we will band the chains inside the butterflies, thus forming a body and antennae.

I recommend working from thin yarn, then the crochet border will look like a gentle and very delicate work. But you can try and work with a thicker yarn, for example, a children’s blanket.
