Video Version:


  1. Thank you for the video! I'm still new at crocheting so the video was a great help to me.

  2. Thank you so much for having this training video on refrigerator butterfly magnets. I was visiting my stepmother and father and she had some on her frig. I thought they were so cute and I wanted to make them. Thanks again. It was very clear and concise.

  3. I was so happy to find your vid that i had to come visit your page ! I am so thrilled to find this! You are awesome! I am bookmarking your page for future reference. Please never take down the video! I can't wait to see what else you have. :-)

  4. I Love this pattern! I am needing a pattern for a butterfly just like this but a little smaller. I am wanting it for a babies headband. Do you have any suggestions?

  5. Maybe if you use a smaller hook & thinner yarn, and do single crochets instead of double, it would turn out smaller.

  6. What size yarn? Sport yarn, 4ply regular crocheting yarn? what size needle/?

  7. Can you answer my question about what kind of yarn? What size needle? Sport yarn or 4 ounce 4 ply yarn?

  8. Thank you for these instructions. My mom made me some when I was much younger, and I don't know what happened to them. I've always wanted to replace them!
