A fritillary is a very pretty butterfly that I had the honor of befriending this past summer. The Oxford dictionary lists fritillary as a butterfly with orange-brown wings that are checkered with black. This shawl certainly has the orange of the butterfly’s wings and a checkered pattern.

The yarn featured in this design is a series of separate gradient skeins allowing each segment to feature a different color. Unlike a continuously dyed gradient hank, the separate skeins allow an easy way to match the segment and the color.

I like to explore different ways that stitches can be worked to give different textures and effects. In this shawl the (US terminology) double crochet (dc) is featured in five different ways.
