This is absolutely beautiful. I love the simplicity of this pattern, and that the pattern is so easy to read. There are so many possibilities, I cant wait to get started making one of these beautiful baby blankets. Hopefully I will have a little niece to give it to someday soon!

I so love the look of this Butterfly Wings Free Crochet Afghan Pattern. The pattern here on this page is well written and easy to follow. It just looks so snuggly soft and will be great for anyone. You can mix up the yarn your use to suit you to your taste, I'm thinking of a soft baby yarn for the baby and a warm cotton blend for out sofa throw. I just really like the lacy pattern that is made using the different stitches. I will have some fun making this one. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

This is just adorable, and so delicate looking. Any little girl would just love to cuddle up with this lovely blanket either on the couch or in her bed. This would also make a wonderful baby shower gift. Baby could use this as a crib blanket and then continue on into toddler bed. I love making gifts like this because most times they are treated as family heirlooms.

Hi. I love this pattern but I am struggling with the stitches. Where can I find it written with english not American crochet stitches.

I just finished the Butterfly Wings Afghan. While it works up beautifullly, if you follow the pattern exactly it comes out the sized just right for a baby blanket. It calls for 5 skeins of yarn but I only used 3 skeins using this pattern. If I make it again I will double the starting chain and make it much longer for an adult.
