Gauge: The butterfly square measures 8”/20.5cm square using larger hook and 4 strands held together.<p>Despite a lifelong struggle with ill health, Frida Kahlo never cocooned herself away. A stunning butterfly shawl by Noreen Crone-Findlay celebrates the artist’s flights of fancy. The butterflies are crocheted individually with four strands of “Lion Crochet Cotton”; the adjoining mesh calls for just one strand. Floor-brushing fringe completes the tableau.

Noreen crocheted a stunning version of the shawl for her daughter’s bride outfit, using silk that she handspun. She bought the silk at Treenway silks:
