Butterfly Magnets

I made these last night. I had some magnets on my fridge that the children have peeled the advertisement off of and this is what I came up with.

Crochet Butterfly

Choose your red heart yarn. Regular crochet hook. Pipe cleaner & flat strong magnet.

Row 1 chain 8 and connect and chain three double crochet two so that will be three stiches chain 3 and double crochet three into the ring and keep track and make 8 total.

Row 2 next color slip stitch and tie chain 3,double crochet 2,chain 3 double crochet 3 next loop connect with double crochet 3 in next loop, chain 3 double crochet 3, repeat so 8 are looped and the other are in between connected. (sorry can't explain that better)

Row 3 change yarn slip stitch and single crochet and connect with ten double crochet into the next loop repeat. There must be 8 with this done and the ones inbetween have single crochet just to move to the next wing. fold over when done tie the pipecleaner through middle and glue magnet to back. Have fun.
