Eighth Butterfly Completed

I think this butterfly turned out really pretty. Probably a lot of that has to do with the thread, which is Aunt Lydia's size 10 in the Pastels colorway. I do like the pattern, too, though--very lacy looking. I used a size 6 steel hook for this butterfly. The pattern is actually a doily pattern with different versions. The butterflies are to go all around the outer perimeter.

I did have a problem with the pattern where there was an error in the instructions for the joining of the wing components. If you ever want to try this pattern, it might help to look at this picture. The thing to keep in mind is that it is the three loops on either side of the point of each of the four wing components that are the joining loops where each component joins to its neighboring wing component and to the body. The centers of these wing components are kind of shaped like a candy corn, and you need to make sure the point of that candy corn shape is pointed toward the body.

Another confusing thing from the very start is that the body is made with only one antenna (feeler) . It is only later, during the process when all the wing components are being attached to the body, that the second antenna is added.
