This beautiful butterfly blanket would be a lovely addition to a young girl’s bedroom. The blanket features a three-dimensional crochet butterfly motif that I believe is made using the crocodile stitch. Annie’s Attic has at least one book available on how to make the stitch.
The soft pastels give the blanket a very youthful feel (they are all classic nursery colors). If it was crocheted in jewel tones and more motifs were added, the larger afghan would be at home in a living room.

Update (January 2013): The link where I originally found the crochet butterfly motif blanket no longer works. I will try to find another link to this blanket, and when I do I will post it here. Unfortunately this is not one of my patterns, but a lot of my readers have inquired about it. I will do my best to find it for all of you.
February 2013 Update: One of Crochet Empire’s readers found the pattern! It can be purchased at Amazon.com. Here is the link: Amazon.com. This is the Kindle edition; I don’t see any print versions available. Thanks, Laurie, for sending me the link!
Thanks for reading,
