Watch as a graceful kaleidoscope flutters through Butterfly Silk. As stunning to gaze upon as it is to wear, this tonal silky yarn reflects the iridescent light of a butterfly wing.

Knit in one color, this easy biased knit rectangular wrap will become a wardrobe staple. In two colors, the chic pop of color transforms it into one spectacular wrap. Style it looped around and tied for causal workdays or float it over your shoulders for an evening out.

The tech edited and test knit pattern is fully written and charted.
