Folded Ring Butterfly

 This tiny butterfly is good for emptying shuttles. Leave a small bit of thread before beginning the first ring. Ring 8ds, 2 first half stitches, 1,  picot, 1, 2 second half stitches, 8ds. Close, making sure that the bit of the ring between the half stitches faces inwards.  Another ring the same. Tie the beginning thread and ending threads together with a reef knot. Trim for antennae.

I thought of making the second half of the ring smaller than the first, but it didn't look right.
