Amigurumi Butterfly Pattern
New Crochet Pattern!
One of my favorite summer sights is butterflies, flying around my garden and yard! My kids have always loved watching and running after them too, so it seemed only fitting to create a lovely little Butterfly Toy for my youngest daughter! Inspired by my Rainbow Caterpillar and Butterfly Rattles pattern, I wanted to create a toy with simple, friendly features to appeal to young children, and so I created the sweet and smiling Bijoux Butterfly Crochet Pattern! I hope y’all love this new pattern as much as I do! 🦋
Large Butterfly Crochet Pattern
I love designing amigurumi patterns, and have been making them since my kids were tiny. Once I had mastered the basic crochet stitches I started making amigurumis and absolutely fell in love with making fun toys – for my kids (of course), but honestly I’m a kid at heart too! I especially love to design toys that encourage learning and the use of imagination.
I really love multifunctional toys too… So I strove to create a large butterfly amigurumi that was easy for little hands to hold. But this pattern is so much more than a toy! While my 3 year old immediately grabbed Bijoux Butterfly by the wings and began racing around the yard and “flying” together, this toy is equally appropriate for babies too. The large, soft wings are made in a granny square blanket style, and they double as a security blanket! So you have a sweet butterfly that can grow with your baby into toddlerhood and beyond – she’s still very much enjoyed by my preschool aged child too. This amigurumi butterfly doll would also be a sweet addition to the bedroom decor of a school aged child as well, so many possibilities!

Butterfly Amigurumi Tutorial
This amigurumi butterfly crochet pattern is perfect for an intermediate crocheter or a confident advanced beginner who is ready to tackle simple amigurumi, a bit of shaping, treble crochet, and some simple seaming! I have included a photo tutorials for making and assembling the butterfly face and the wings. You will be able to confidently say you KNOW how to crochet a butterfly baby blanket and amigurumi once you’ve completed the pattern!
Here’s what you need to get started: 200-250 yards of Red Heart Super Saver or your choice of worsted/aran weight 4 yarn in 4 different colors for the body and wings. You could definitely use some larger balls of scrap yarn and it’s a great way to give new life to the ends of skeins you have lying around. You will need a US G/6 4.0 mm hook for the body and a H/8 5.0 mm hook for the wings ← I highly recommend these gorgeous beauties! My 100% go to hooks for amigurumi are Furls Odyssey Hooks, I loved using mine to create this adorable amigurumi butterfly pattern! You will also need 15 mm safety eyes, felt eyes, or yarn to embroider the eyes, and about 3 ounces of your stuffing of choice – you can’t go wrong with my fave poly-fil!
Below are the yarns I used to create my samples. For this project I used RHSS in Light Raspberry, Medium Purple, Lemon, and Aruba Sea. I absolutely love how she turned out. 😍 I think you will have a LOT of fun choosing your colors for this project. Whether you go for colors to match a nursery theme, pick some neutrals to pair with a pop of color, or to match a favorite butterfly, you will truly end up with a crochet butterfly amigurumi project to treasure!
