Time for butterflies – Fjäril Mini is here!

My first adult cardigan Fjäril has been re-tested and updated with an improved fit! To celebrate, Fjäril has finally transformed itself to a baby and child sized version! A simple top down and seamless construction adorned with a beautiful butterfly lace. Every girl and woman should have one!
