Relaxing garter stitch, a unique, exciting border and handspun yarns make Peacock Butterfly a really special project. Knit it in size small to use it as a scarf or in size medium or large for a shawl to cozy up with.

This top-down shawl was originally designed for handspun yarns but has been tested with a number of commercial yarns as well. Fingering to DK weight works best for this pattern. The pattern contains both charted and written-out instructions.
