How to Make a Granny Hexagon Butterfly!

These butterflies are so cute and easy to make!  They are a great way too to use up some of your scrap yarn and ribbon too…all you need is a finished hexagon (tutorial below), some ribbon and scissors.  Let’s make a pretty butterfly, shall we?

Begin by making a hexagon.  You can make them as large or small as you like:

The blue-edged hexagon above was worked in 5 rounds and the yellow-edged hexagon was made in 4 rounds.  Click below for a full video tutorial on how to make a hexagon stitch by stitch:

When you’re finished, weave in any ends and follow these simple steps:

  1. Fold hexagon as shown below.
  2. Cut a 12 inch piece of ribbon and wrap it around the hexagon as shown.
  3. Tie at the top.  Be sure to cinch it a little as you tie to make it look more like wings and less geometric.

Next, trim the each ribbon antenna at an angle with scissors,

All finished…lovely!
