Butterfly Shawl

The light-as-a-feather shawl sits on the shoulders without needing a closure (but of course one would look lovely if you so desire…), making it a very popular design!!

I continue to love the simplicity and versatility of this pattern - you can knit it in virtually any weight by adjusting your needle size. It is a good pattern for someone just getting into lace knitting as it isn’t too difficult, but it is just as good for the experienced knitter looking for a simple knit that has just enough interest so as not to get bored. The shape is such that it looks like a butterfly when it is laid flat (I named it while it was blocking!) and it sits perfectly on your shoulders so you don’t need a pin to keep it in place!

It uses approximately 3 skeins of Peppino. You can do all three in one of his stunning colourways, or two of one colour and one of a contrast colour for the two colour version, or one skein of three different colours for a three colour version.

I hope you love knitting your Butterfly Shawl!
