Fool your friends with this stylish scarf that looks and feels like knit drop-stitches and smooth stockinette, but is made with the fun of crochet! Plus, there’s not a single end to weave in, as the yarn tails are integrated into the fringe!

With its violet-coloured yarn, this pattern is named for the fritillary butterflies, many species of which are so sensitive in their caterpillar stage that they eat only violets! Fritillaries and other pollinators world-wide are in decline; to find out how you can help, visit the Xerces Society at http://www.xerces.org/.

This pattern uses UK crochet terminology, which is translated to US crochet terminology in the back of the magazine.
