This is my beginner crochet stitches series
and in this tutorial i’m going to be showing you how to do the Butterfly stitch and also
how to increase and decrease and work it in rows Hi guys for this tutorial i’m going to
to be showing you how to do the butterfly stitch and i’m going to be doing it in slow
motion, also so that you should be able to see it very clearly first you go in through your
first stitch and you pull up a loop then you yarn over you go through one of the loops
on your hook you’re essentially chaining the without yarning over you go into the next
stitch, yarn over I don’t know if that is what you call it, when you grab more yarn,
leaving yourself with three loops on your hook now this is where you want to yarn over
and go in through two loops, then yarn over one more time and go through the last two.
then to complete the stitch and its very important chain one now again and i’ll show you this
in slow motion That’s how you do the butterfly stitch and all you do is just go in again, through one stitch, pull through one then you go into the next stitch pull through two then pull through two then chain one now when working in the round you’re going to be working with the right side facing you but just to show you in the tutorial because it’s exactly the same. you will be working in the wings of the butterfly So just imagine it’s still going in the round and your second row of butterfly stitches. you’re going to be going in through the first wing, is what i call it, pulling up a loop, then do the butterfly stitch as usually by pulling in through one. Then you want to go in through the next wing of the butterfly here pull up your next loop, then you pull through two then you pull through two, just like you’d normally would. and chain one now i’ll show you that in slow motion and that’s how you do the butterfly stitch on the second row now I want to show you how to increase and decrease with the butterfly stitch and it’s very simple. To decrease with the butterfly stitch. all you do is you start as usual doing the butterfly stitch in each of the wings The only difference is. If you want to decrease is you don’t chain one at the end of the stitch. usually you would chain one here. Because you’re going through two stitches. So at the end you want to end up with two stitches. and the chain allows you to have that second stitch. so if you don’t chain one. then you are turning two stitches into one. SO that’s how you decrease using the Butterfly stitch You just don’t chain one. Now to increase, with the butterfly stitch let me go ahead and chain one here to finish this stitch. Okay to increase you do the full butterfly stitch, in each wing. So you do a full butterfly stitch here and a full butterfly stitch here and i’ll show you how to do that in slow motion. and that’s how you do an increase you just do two full butterfly stitches in each of the wings. and after you’ve chained one. Because this chain one, as I showed you before is very important to the stitch. Because it’s adding that extra stitch. So just by completing the butterfly stitch as usual in each of the butterfly wings you’ve increased from two stitches to four. And that’s how you do the increase with the butterfly stitch please stay tuned for more beginner tutorials. Thanks for watching!
