This pattern is written with a simple variant of ‘turn’ sometimes called a DOUBLE STITCH. You may use a Wrap & twist, but the counts are different.
The technique is described in the pattern, if you can do a W&T, the slightly easier “DS” should be a welcome change… however, they are not interchangeable as techniques- the STITCH counts shift… thanks!

Gorgeous pattern with lots of visual movement.
Much more simple than the previous “Butterfly/ Papillion”, due to the more static nature of the pattern.

  • It is still not simple and takes focus.
  • It is not great for knit nights or social knitting… (sadly) … if you like to chat or drink wine…

It is appropriate for most knitting skills levels (you must be good at the knit stitch and willing to learn a couple new techniques). However, we each know our own skills and attentive abilities. This one requires much attention. If you are not generally adept at that, even if you have been knitting for a long time, this may not be your best choice of work.

That being said, many beginner knitters have been able to make the more complex “Butterfly/ Papillion” - as they were intent on completing it.

Thank you.
