A butterfly which has almost completely disappeared in the Netherlands. In 1995 and 2006 there was a major invasion of mourning cloaks in the Netherlands. They do fly in other parts of Europe and North America. The butterfly has a dark brown red wing with a light yellow border with blue dots. In this crochet pattern I chose dark brown, because this color matches the color of the wing the most. The crochet butterfly is 30 cm by 20 cm.
