Crochet Butterfly Patterns - Free and Easy

I was searching the internet for something new to crochet. I found a few different butterflies I really liked but I couldn't find a pattern for them. I decided to attempt to make some. The two different versions of crochet butterflies are shown above. The patterns are similar but you can see a bit of variety in the rounded versus pointed wing tips as well as the open holes in the wings on the right image. This is a great pattern to use up leftover yarn.

I found that you can crochet butterflies and donate them to the following charities:

Angels for Hope

Description: Angels for Hope sends hand-crocheted angels and butterflies to those who are severely injured and/or chronically ill as well as their caregivers. The angels and butterflies are a reminder that those suffering are not alone, and that others care. The Angels for Hope web site includes links to many organizations including American Heart Association, National Breast Cancer Foundation, National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Polio Connection of America, and various caregiver support groups. There is also a thoughts, prayers, and hopes message board.
