There is a better explanation of the butterfly in the previous post.

Hook E
With Black yarn: ch 7, sl st in 2nd ch from hook and in the next 5 chs, 5 sc in final ch. fasten off. Use your tapestry needle to weave black yarn tails to position where antenna would be. See picture.
Attach butterfly color 2 stitches from the tail. See pic...
Wings right side: ch 3, hdc, sc, 1 dc in next sc, 2 trc in next stitch, 2 dc in next stitch, sc, fasten off. I weave ends in at this time.
Wings left side: ch 3, hdc, sc, 1 dc in next sc, 2 trc in next stitch, 2 dc in next stitch, sc, fasten off. I weave ends in at this time.
attach CC, to sc, sc in each st until you reach the last stitch. Put 4 sc in the last ch3. ch 1, sc into black tail on the backside, ch 1, 4 sc in ch3, sc along the other side of the wing. fasten off. Using a tapestry needle weave the yarn to the underneath center. Sew your little butterfly to the center of the lid that still has the yarn attached.

Change back to G hook, sc around lids , join with sl st. fasten off, weave in ends.
Hold the two lids wrong side together,

thank you for stopping by, I had a great weekend and I am feeling pretty good and have decided to be strong as my mother taught me. It was a gorgeouse weekend here 77 degrees and sunny, we went to Mt. Dora and walked around to all of the craft and antique shops, and then I was bad and went to big boy and had lunch and coconut cream pie, yummy!

The pattern continues after making your butterfly and sewing it on one side of the lid.

Hi, I was wondering if there is an error in Round 5 or if I am just missing something in my quasi-newbie-to-crochet mind. =^^=;

Rnd 3 has 48dc
Rnd 4 ends up with 72sc
Rnd 5 you say it should end with 48sc but it does not since we are only decreasing one sc after ever 7sc.

Please help? =^^=;; Should I just be doing the reverse of Rnd 4?
