When I spent watching people paragliding in Eastern Switzerland, I saw lots of butterflies. The canton of Appenzell has for „butterfly“ a special word:
This inspired me to design this triangular shawl.
The body of the shawl is knitted in stockinette, surrounded by a lace border with butterflies.
The lace is knitted on both sides. Therefore it‘s
recommended for intermediate knitters.
The lace includes gathered stitches. In the pattern is a tutorial included how to knit this specific stitch.
The instructions are charted and written.
main colour: 218 yards / 200m
contrasting colour: 306 yards / 280m
(I recommend to use the lighter colour as the contrasting colour, as it will be used for the lace.)
wingspan 53 inches/ 135cm
depth 19.5 inches/ 50cm
24 sts and 36 rows = 4“/ 10cm in stockinette stitch and blocked
