'Ode to the butterfly by Heather Alwood

'Ode to the butterfly

This pattern idea had been smouldering in my mind for awhile and it took some work to get it out in the form I wanted but I am very happy with the result. The yarn it was made in was delightful to work with, it didn’t split and it has a wonderful drape and yet it is so floaty at the same time. If you choose to use a silk, it can be very slippery making it easy to drop stitches and difficult to contain the problem so I suggest using life lines.
Warning: this is a intermediate pattern for intermediate knitters, if you have never knit lace before or read a chart this is NOT where you want to start. Also this pattern does require rigorous blocking.
