During the late Summer and Fall, where I live in South Texas, we have migrating butterflies that pass through our area moving south for the Winter. Some pass through in swarms and others are more sporadic. The most magnificent are the Monarch butterflies. After designing this piece, I realized that the stitches of the edging reminded me of butterflies and it pointed me toward the perfect name for this wrap.

The Butterflies in Flight wrap is crocheted from the bottom up, and is light and airy, and the perfect wrap for the transition from Winter to Spring and Summer to Fall. The wrap can be worn in a multitude of ways. You can wrap it around your neck as a scarf, or drape it over your shoulders as a wrap. And, you can add a button and wear it as a poncho!

The main body of the scarf is an easy one-row repeat. Then, without breaking the yarn the edging is crocheted on the bottom angled edges of the wrap and tassels are sewed on to finish off the wrap.

You will need about 875 yards of fingering or sock weight yarn. I used two skeins of Lone Star Arts Mockingbird Sock yarn in a tonal colorway named “Siren”. Choose a beautiful color, or go neutral, and crochet a wrap that will go with your entire wardrobe.

You will need two hooks for this wrap, a Size G and a Size H hook.
