Chart: Leaves, Signifying a Butterfly's Habitat

Designed by Sandi Marshall 6/1997

Because proper habitat is so essential
to the life of any butterfly,
the series includes this graph
which represents a part of a butterfly's habitat.

Leaves; Habitat
Crocheting Chart for Afghan Square

Cross-stitch Detailing

Worsted weight yarn: 1 oz. white, 1/2 oz. dark green,
1/2 oz. light green, 1/2 oz. black,

Size G crochet hook
Guage: 4 stitches = 1 inch, 4 rows = 1 inch
Apprx. size of each finished square = 10 inches

Note: At the end of each row, you will chain 1 to turn.

To make this easier (and more fun) to complete, basic leaf shape colors are crocheted in, but details are added afterward with a cross-stitch. This eliminates crocheting with too many colors in any row at the same time. How to Change Colors in Crochet, Changing Colors How-To (Photos)

With white yarn, chain 41.

Following Chart 2:
With a large-eye needle, using a cross-stitch (X), add the center details to the leaves and the black outlining around the leaves.
