Introduction: Pat's Butterflies
This is an original design made with Chenille Thick & Quick. A friend wanted me to make a butterfly afghan for her, and my favorite stitch is the afghan stitch so I drew some butterflies, copied the designs to graph paper, then typed them in an electronic spreadsheet. I find this makes it easier to keep track of the stitches so I can mark through completed stitches on the printed spreadsheet. I cross stitched the butterflies onto squares made with a size K afghan hook. If I were to do this again, I would not use Chenille because it is so heavy for the afghan stitch, and it sheds when cross stitching.
