Monarch Butterfly - Free Chart for Cross-Stitch - Adaptable for Knitting or Crocheting

My charted design is suitable for adapting to intarsia knitting, cross-stitch on a crocheted background, as well as for working in traditional cross-stitch on aida cloth. I originally came up with the monarch butterfly portion in 1997 as part of one of my other designs. I decided to use this butterfly again in this new way, with a framing of lines that I made up randomly as I went along, wherever my imagination took me, so the final look would be unique.

Below the chart, there is a color key, with colors for several embroidery floss brands. Because these colors are quite basic, you can easily substitute different shades of the colors to use what you have on hand. If adapting the chart for crocheting or knitting, substitute yarn colors of your choice.

If you click on the chart, you will go to a page with the full-size chart image. Please note my copyright and terms of use below, before printing out the chart.
