How to Knit the Butterfly Stitch

The butterfly stitch is a great pattern for advanced beginner knitters. While the end product might look intimidating, the pattern is actually pretty simple. The slipped stitches are gathered together to form delicate butterfly-like wings which are where the stitch gets its name. It is also referred to as the smocking stitch.  

When to Use the Butterfly Stitch 

This is a great stitch to add a little decoration to a baby blanket or a ladies scarf. It is also good for knitters who would like to add some texture to their work without dealing with tricky cable stitches.

You can also use the butterfly stitch to narrow sections of a garment that are too wide with little change to the original pattern.

Butterfly Stitch Pattern

The pattern is worked over multiples of 10 stitches plus 9 stitches. For example, use 39, 49, or 59 total stitches for the pattern. It requires 20 rows to complete one series of two butterfly rows.

You will notice that the butterflies are offset within the two repeats of the pattern. This is a nice way to avoid stacking the butterfly pattern and adds to its appeal in the finished garment.

  • Rows 1, 3, 5, 7, 9: Knit 2. *Move yarn to the front of the work, slip 5 stitches, move yarn to back, knit 5 stitches. Repeat from *, end last repeat with knit 2.
  • Rows 2, 4, 6, 8:Purl.
  • Row 10: Purl 4. *Pick up loose strands with the right-hand needle, slip strands onto left-hand needle and purl together with the next stitch, purl 9. Repeat from *, end purl 4.
  • Rows 11, 13, 15, 17, 19: Knit 7. *Move yarn to the front of the work, slip 5 stitches, move yarn to back, knit 5. Repeat from *, end last repeat with knit 7.
  • Rows 12, 14, 16, 18: Purl.
  • Row 20: Purl 3. *Pick up loose strands with the right-hand needle, slip strands onto left-hand needle and purl together with the next stitch, purl 9. Repeat from *, end last repeat with purl 3.

Repeat these rows for the pattern.

Tips

  • Keep the working yarn loose behind the slipped stitches. If you pull too tightly, it will make it very difficult to pick up the loose strands.
  • If you are making a scarf or similar garment, cast on any additional stitches you need for the borders and knit a few foundation rows before starting the pattern. Repeat it at the end of the scarf. 
  • The basic garter stitch or ribbed stitch are nice options for borders. These will frame your butterfly pattern and help your scarf lay flat by preventing the ends and edges from curling up.
  • If you notice the abbreviation "wyif" in the pattern, it means "with yarn in front" and is the same as "move yarn to the front of the work." Similarly, "wyib" means "with yarn in back."

I wanted to share this Knit Butterfly Stitch Tutorial because I am working on a pattern that is going to use the Knit Butterfly Stitch. This is one of those knitting pattern where I believe that a picture is worth a thousand words. The Knit Butterfly Stitch requires 5 stitches and 10 rows.  If you want to work up a swatch to practice the Knit Butterfly Stitch, I recommend adding 5 stitches of either stockinette or garter stitch in between each butterfly band.

The Knit Butterfly Stitch is made up of three strands of yarn carried across the front of the fabric. You then use a knit stitch to bring together the carried strands of yarn.

Knit Butterfly Stitch Swatch Pattern

Here is the basic pattern for the Knit Butterfly Stitch. I will give the pattern directions based on a border of 5 garter stitches on either side. The Knit Butterfly Stitch is shown in [brackets].

  • Cast On 15 sts
  • Row 1, 3, 5, 7: K5, [K5], K5
  • Row 2, 10: K5, [P5], K5
  • Row 4, 6, 8: K5, [Slip 5 sts Purl Wise (yarn held in back)], K5
  • Row 9: K5, [K2, Pick up 3 carried strands with right needle, K1, Slip carried strands over K stitch, K2], K5

 

How to do the yarn carry rows (rows 4, 6, 8)

Please note: I am working with different edges than given in the swatch pattern above. The Knit Butterfly Stitch is illustrated between the two pink markers.

Begin by holding the yarn to the back. Since we are working on the wrong side, the yarn will be carried across the right side of the pattern.

Slip 5 stitches as if you were purling.

Carefully, without pulling the yarn too tight, work the next stitch after the butterfly pattern. I left the yarn looser for the photo than I actually do. You just don’t want it to pull the fabric in.

When you have completed all three carry rows, you should have three yarn loops on the right side of your pattern. You are now ready to complete the butterfly body row.

 

How to do the butterfly body row (row 9)

First you will need to knit the first two stitches after the marker, then use your right hand needle to pick up the loose yarn carries by inserting the right needle from the bottom.

Knit the next stitch, which is the middle stitch of the butterfly pattern.

Use the left hand needle to slip the loose yarn strands over the knitted stitch.

Knit the last two stitches in the butterfly pattern.

Continue knitting the rest of your pattern.

 

Variations to the Knit Butterfly Stitch Size

You can make you butterfly taller by completing an extra carry row (or two) before completing the butterfly body row. Additionally, you can also make your butterflies wider by working the pattern in 7 or 9 stitches. Just remember that you need an odd number of stitches so that the butterfly body can be centered and you also don’t want to make the butterfly too wide because it is not a good idea to carry yarn for more than a few stitches. Have fun adding the Knit Butterfly Stitch to your next knitting project.

 

By the way, because I know someone will ask, the yarn in the photos is Knit Picks Chroma Worsted in colorway Confetti.

Stitches knitting butterfly

Butterfly Stitch

Start your Butterfly Stitch by casting on in multiples of 10 + 9 stitches.

The first row begins by knitting two, you then enter a repeating pattern of slipping five stitches purlwise (with the yarn forward) and then knitting five. Repeat this until you reach the last seven stitches and slip five stitches purlwise (with the yarn forward), finishing by knitting two. For the second row (and all wrong side/even rows) purl all the stitches. Repeat this alternating pattern from row one through to and including row eight.

The ninth row begins by knitting four then start a repeating pattern with knitting one under the loose strands from the first eight rows, then knit nine more stitches. Repeat this pattern until you reach the last five stitches, where you will again knit one under the loose strands and finish by knitting four.

The eleventh row starts with knitting seven stitches, and then enters the repeat of slipping five stitches purlwise (with the yarn in front), then knitting five. Keep repeating this pattern until you reach the last two stitches, and knit two. Repeat the eleventh row for rows thirteen, fifteen and seventeen.

Begin the nineteenth row by knitting nine stitches, again entering a repeating pattern by knitting the first stitch under the four loose strands created by the previous eight rows, follow this by knitting another nine stitches. Keep repeating this until you reach the end of the row. The twentieth row, as with all wrong side rows should consist entirely of purl stitches.

Keep repeating rows 1-20 until you reach the desired length.

How to knit the Butterfly Stitch

They jerked off her clitoris, forcing her to finish with relish. Then again and again. They wanked her pussy and clitoris until a fountain of urine shot up from her mother, forcing her to just scream in ecstasy and beat.

She thrust four fingers into herself, sitting on her hand. The pussy leaked and squelched. She finished violently, powerlessly sank to the floor. It was even like a puddle formed under it.
