This “glowing” butterfly cross stitch pattern is a nice pick-me-up pattern to complete!

Every month, I’m sharing new cross stitch patterns created by me. I’ve been wanting to do a butterfly one for a bit, and have actually accumulated a number of images to turn into a series for my Etsy shop, but I thought I’d start with this one and offer it this month in the free series, too!

While it technically doesn’t “glow”, you could always try to substitute a few of the neon DMC floss colors into this pattern (just replace one of the brighter colors with something from the fluorescent color skeins or the Prism neon set). I haven’t personally gotten my hands on those colors yet, but I bet it could be really cool!

About this “Glowing” Butterfly Cross Stitch Pattern

Note: Free cross stitch patterns are available for a limited time only based on publish date (right now the time limit is about 2 years and subject to change if this proves to be too difficult to maintain). They are then moved into the Membership Vault and accessible to Cross Stitch Club Members only. So, you may see some previously free patterns on this site that have now been moved to the vault. Please do not email me about your frustrations of not getting access to older free patterns; it’s partly because of the volume of emails that I needed to reevaluate and put some restrictions on the time commitment to continue providing patterns for free.
