Chrysopsyche mirifica moth
Chrysopsyche mirifica moth was first described by English entomologist, arachnologist and ornithologist Arthur Gardiner Butler in 1878.
The moth is found in Angola, Sierra Leone, Cameroon and Nigeria.
Its wingspan is about 5 cm.
The pattern is suitable for brick stitch or peyote stitch.
I wove the moth using peyote stitch. And the thread way is shown for peyote stitch.
You’ll need some fishing line with diameter 0,15 mm, a beading needle size 11-15 and 13 colours of seed beads size 11 or size 10.
2 toho beads palettes are offered: for opaque beads and for metal-lined ones.
The pattern includes a photo of the finished butterfly and 3 graphs showing the way of weaving the moth including how to fasten the thread.
