Notes From the Designer:

Nothing says new beginnings like a butterfly. If you have observed one up close, you have experienced their beauty first hand, and if you have been lucky enough to see a flutter of butterflies, it is awe inspiring indeed! Palometa is a large, striped shawl featuring the double crochet puff stitch shaped to resemble butterflies in flight.

Choose your colors and get ready to create so you can wrap yourself in the comfort of your Palometa shawl as you keep moving forward on your own beautiful journey in life.

“Happiness is like a butterfly: the more you chase it, the more it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder.” -Henry David Thoreau
