Vacation Butterfly Shawl Kit
Vacation Butterfly Shawl by MarinJaKnits s a variation of the popular Butterfly-Papillon Shawl. It is similar but includes easy, peasy relaxing garter in the middle of the shawl. The short row colorwork is at the edges.
The pattern is written in sections as if you're gong on a vacation which makes this fun. Packing is the start where you have to pay attention, Travel is the section with lots of garter and finishes with Returning Home/Back to Work where there is the most effort with short rows.
The shawls pictured are knit using Uneek Fingering paired with Monokrom Fingering for a semi-solid look. Our kit pairs Uneek Fingering with either Monokrom Fingering for a semi-solid look (as pictured) or Harvest Fingering for a solid look that can make the short row colorwork sections really pop.
This shawl is primarily knit in GARTER. It will look smaller and block bigger, depending on how hard you block it.
