Hypolimnas dexithea (Madagascar diadem) is a Madagascar endemic. It was described in 1863 by British naturalist William Chapman Hewitson.
The butterfly flies in tropical forests of northern and central parts of the island.
The wingspan is 9 cm.
Natives also call Hypolimnas dexithea triciolor in the memory of the time when France ruled Madagascar.
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 15 colours of seed beads size 11 or size 10.
