Melody of stripes is a striped shawl/wrap with colorful yarn. I used Noro Melody for colorful part and navy cotton yarn to make cool stripes.
The chevron stitches and linen stitches are used so the whole shape looks like the butterfly.
You can wear it like a shrug with the longer edge wrapped in your neck, or just wrap around your neck as a shawl. This is an ideal project if you have small stocks of multicolor yarn and uni color yarn.
