After struggling with generic crochet hooks for months I decided I’d had enough and would buy some new ones. As my KnitPro knitty sticks and circs have been so good, I bought a couple of their crochet hooks.
They crochet like a dream, no more fighting with splitty yarn, they just glide through the stitches. The handle is nice and soft, and they’re small enough to fit in my hand, perfect.
And now to new butterflies, I’ve completely rewritten the Butterfly Cluster Square in three colours instead of two, it is a bit more fiddly to crochet, but I think it’s worth it. Here’s the before and after pics…
Butterfly Cluster Square – before
Butterfly Cluster Square – after
With the new design it’s much easier to join squares together to make a blankie or shawl or…whatever you desire 🙂
This design was intended to be a butterfly lace washcloth, Chris said there are too many things with butterflies on, and decided it was a Moth Cloth. I couldn’t really argue, after all it is full of holes!
Whether you decide to knit it as a washcloth, or incorporate the design into a scarf, or a blanket, just remember that you’re supporting all the unloved moths out there that get overlooked in favour of butterflies!
