On Butterfly Wings is a top-down shawl that might look complicated at first, but rest assured that it is a two-row repeat that couldn’t be simpler. Great for beginners--or for anyone who likes to keep a project going that is easy to remember, making it free of stress.

With the approach of autumn, we begin to say hello to cooler weather and good-bye to the flutter of butterflies as they begin their migration to warmer weather. You can wrap yourself up in this cozy shawl and imagine that you are right there with them as they wing their way southward.

As the original shawl was made with acrylic, I’ve included a swatch in a blockable yarn so you can see a blocked version.
