Last summer we raised a few Painted Lady Butterflies for my three year old daughter. The scarf brings back the memories of watching the slow transformation from homely caterpillars to beautiful butterflies. It was a happy and bittersweet memory to watch the transformed butterflies take flight and soar off into the wind.

Butterfly Scarflet is a simple lace scarf knit in two pieces and joined using three needle bind off.

The scarf incorporates an airy, yet simple pattern repeat with a butterfly relief at either end.

This pattern is suitable for beginning chart readers.
