Crocheted Spring Banner with Butterflies

Grandma G crocheted these butterflies by the dozens for magnets to sell at craft shows.  I figured out the pattern from one of hers.
This is the first crocheted banner I have made where the pieces are actually pennant shaped.  I learned a lot.

Next time I will make sure to not be impatient, and block the flags, so the sides do not go concave.  I will also weave a thread through the length of it to prevent stretching.  
I am really pleased with using crochet thread instead of yarn like folks, including myself, usually use.  It has a much more delicate appearance.

Happy Spring Everyone!
