Danaus chrysippus butterfly

Danaus chrysippus first descri ed by the great Swedish naturalist Carl Linnaeus in 1758, ia also known as the lain tiger African queen, or African Monarch, is widespread in Asia, Australia and Africa. They feed on toxic milkweed and so are inedible for most predators. Danaus chrisippus is mostly found in dry, wide-open areas. Its wingspan is 7-8 cm.
This butterfly is possibly one of the first lepidopteras depicted in art. You can see it in 3500-year-old Egyptian fresco in Luxor.

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.

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.
