Pattern Details


Muriel measures 6 inches tall when made with worsted weight yarn.

Want a bigger or smaller butterfly? Use thicker or thinner yarn and a larger or smaller hook!


This is an easy pattern, best for adventurous beginners and those who have made at least one basic amigurumi already.

Skills required:

  • single crochet
  • increasing
  • decreasing
  • attaching parts
  • crocheting two rounds together (to get those cute wing bumps)

The pattern is a pdf that contains step-by-step photographs, and you'll find videos at Shiny Happy World teaching all the skills you'll need. You’ll never feel lost or wonder if you're doing it right. :-)

  • Polyester stuffing
  • two 12 mm black eyes
  • Tapestry needle
  • Locking stitch markers

This pattern is not available for commercial resale. That means you may not copy and sell or digitally distribute the pattern or any variation of the pattern

For example, you may not print the pattern and sell those copies.


You may, however, sell anything you make with Shiny Happy World patterns as long as you are the one making it.

For example, if you're using this pattern to make items which you sell at a craft fair or in an online shop, that's great!

Talk to Me

If you're hiring out any part of the process, please get in touch and we'll work out a fair licensing agreement.

For example, if you want to hire someone to help you crochet, or to do all the stuffing for you, those two scenarios would require a licensing agreement. Get in touch! I'm easy to talk to. :-)
