Bernat POP! Butterfly Crochet Graphgan
For written instructions please follow link above.

When you have finished all of your squares, you will begin on adding borders to all six of them!
First you will DC around each square in white yarn. Make a DC + chain 2 + DC in each of the corners. On the rough edges, try to space your DC stitches evenly. You don’t want to over do it the edges of your butterfly will start to ripple.

Next, make another round of DC stitches along the border but this time using black yarn. Just as before make a DC + chain 2 + DC in each of the four corners.

Now that all of your borders are done, you are ready to join your butterfly panels! You will make 3 joins. One directly down the middle and two going horizontal between the first and second row and then another join between the 2nd and 3rd row of butterflies.

I used the mattress stitch to join the panels.

Don’t let the corners catch you off guard! Just keep joining those corners together. They will all pull together nicely. In fact, is it just me or do the corner joins kind look like tiny butterflies?!

One finally piece to the graphgan and you are finished!! Let’s make one last border around the entire blanket to tie it all together. I opted for a simple black border because I really wanted the Bernat POP! Butterflies to stand out and be the focal point. I would love to see other versions if that is what you prefer! I made an entire round of DC stitches in black yarn along the edges. Make 2 DC + chain 2 + 2 DC in the four corners.
