Hooked for Life Floating Butterflies Shawl PDF
This gossamer Floating Butterflies Shawl from Hooked for Life is crocheted from the center/top down in a luscious multi-colored lace weight yarn. The border changes from a mesh background to a double crochet background to add both visual interest, and a little weight to the fabric at the hem so it hangs nicely when being worn. The beginning of the shawl is written out row by row, then, with a little help from some traveling stitch markers, it’s a short intuitive leap to placing the butterflies and completing the shawl. This is the perfect travel shawl - it can be dressed up or dressed down, and it weighs next to nothing!
