Danis danis butterfly female ventral
Danis danis, or the large green-banded blue, first described in 1775 by Dutch entomologist Pieter Cramer, inhabits Australia and New Guinea. The wingspan of the butterfly is about 7 cm.
The pattern is suitable for brick stitch or peyote stitch.
I wove the butterfly 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 11 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 butterfly including how to fasten the thread.
This butterfly pattern is a part of the collection "24 butterflies and moths of the world".
