R2: Ch 3, (dc, ch 2, 2dc) in ch 2 sp, *(2dc, ch 2, 2dc) in next ch 2 sp, Rep * around, sl st to top of ch 3. DO NOT TURN.

R3: Ch 3, 9 dc in ch 2 sp, sc in next sp bet two 2dc sets, *10 dc in next ch 2 sp, sc in next sp bet two 2dc sets, Rep * around, sl st to top of ch 3. Fasten off.

Finishing: Fold over at the center, matching 10 dc sections. Take a 4″ piece of pipe cleaner, fold in half, and twist around the middle to create the butterfly body. Twist the ends to make antennae.
