Crochet and knitted butterflies for World Wide Knit in Public Day: free patterns, events, and an Instagram competition

Are you also looking forward to going out on June 11 and knitting and crocheting together on World Wide Knit in Public Day 2022? This year, we’re finally breaking free of our chrysalis life at home! It’s time to spread your wings, needles, and crochet hooks beyond your living room sofa. That’s why, this time, we suggest turning some balls of Katia yarn into crochet and knitted butterflies, as a symbol of joy and transformation.

  • We’re sharing some simple charted patterns for free, so that your creativity can take flight with these knitted and crochet butterflies.
  • As well as suggesting decorative ideas using butterflies, there’s also a map to discover which Katia stores are organizing events to knit and crochet in public.
  • Lastly, we want to reward you, spreading your love for knitting and crochet beyond the walls of your home. Find out how to win a set of Katia products —valued at €150— through our #KatiaKnit2022 Instagram competition at the end of this post…

Join both pieces (see illustrations) and wrap around both pieces tightly 6 times, leaving a tail at the top (1st antenna). Next, attach the end at the top of the wraps and cut the yarn to make the 2nd antenna.
