A lot of people probably have this pattern but just in case there are some who don't I would like to share it with you.
row 1: make a chain of 7-10 and join in beginning chain to form a circle.
row 2: Chain 3, make 3 treble crochet in circle, (chain 2 and make 4 treble crochet in circle) 7 times, join to beginning chain 4. You should have 8-4
treble crochet with chain 2 spaces between them).
row 3: slip stitch to first chain 2 space, chain 3, 2 treble crochet in chain 2 space, chain 2, 3 treble crochet in same space. 3 treble crochet, chain 2, 3 treble crochet in next space 7times, join to beginning chain 3.
row 4: slip stitch to first chain 2 space, chain 2, 9 double crochet in chain 2 space, (single crochet in space between 3 treble crochet cluster, 10 double crochet in next chain 2 space, 7 times, join with slip stitche to beginning chain 2 in this round. Fasten off.
When you have finished this round you will fold the piece in half and attach half of a chinele stem in the center as seen in the pictures. I use a size 7 needle and bedspread cotton thread. You can change the size of the butterfly by just increasing or decreasing the size of you needle. I use these for lots of other things besides just the refrigerater, such as flip flops, and pins to wear on clothing. If you have any problems with the pattern please let me know. Hope you enjoy!
