Butterfly Garden Afghan by Dragon-Star-Empress Butterfly Garden Afghan by Dragon-Star-Empress

Entry for :icondaknitters: May 2016 Contest

 

Made this for a little girl my step mom baby-sits, poor girl, she’s being raised by her grandfather, her mother is in jail, fathers not around and her grandmother died in the last couple years. My step mother said she has no other women in her life, and my step mother actually said with disturbing certainty that the girl would end up in prison like her mom, the girl might be 10 years old maybe a little younger. Every time I’m over at my dad’s house when she’s there she just wants to hang out with me and I can tell she’s really starved for attention so I’ve started trying to teach her how to crochet, and she asked if I could crochet her something and I wanted to do something bright and cheerful and designed this.

 

Commissions are available contact me for details, price will vary based on size and number of different colors used for the flowers.

It's lovely!  Are the butterflies separate from the rest of the afghan?

Thank you.

Yes, the butterflies were made separately and then sewn on, so they’re 3D compared to the rest of the afghan.

That's good to hear. I know a kid who went through something like that but a lot more dramatic. He was also being raised by his grandfather but his grandfather died and everything went downhill from there.
