Crochet Butterfly Stitch Shawl
I had some of this yarn left over from a previous project. There was not a huge amount so I used it to try a new stitch, the butterfly stitch, and because it turned out so well I decided to buy another donut ball to finish the project.
When finished the size of the shawl seemed small-ish but the yarn is so light plus the stitch is open and airy which lends itself to a light summer wrap not a bulky warm winter wrap. The project grew and it all worked out well.
The colour of the yarn made up into a lovely texture with thick and thin parts combined with light and dark shades throughout. I think this gives the shawl a real interest and makes it slightly boho.
The pattern is complex but repetitive enough to set up a rhythm. It made up into a soft and drapey shawl in denim hues.
