Mariposa (butterfly) is a crescent-shaped shawl worked in one piece from the neck down, which is perfect for chilly summer evenings. The sides of Garter Stitch gives it some weight while the lace pattern gives it it’s drape. To complement the body, every ruffle in the border has one repeat of the butterfly lace pattern. The shawl is worked top down in the Garter Stitch true lace pattern with an increasing Garter Stitch border, to get a nice contrast. The border part can be started at any RS row, making this an highly adaptable pattern. In the pattern are instructions on how to calculate when to start with the border.
