  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    This garter stitch shawl is knit with short rows that echo the wings of a butterfly. I-cord edges frame the shawl for a smooth and easy to knit project. Two cakes of Bilum’s gradient yarn produce fascinating color changes, so you can let the yarn do all the work as you enjoy the relaxing garter stitch rows.

  • Finished Measurements
    72” / 183cm wingspan length, 24” / 61cm at widest part. Measurements taken after blocking.

    Fingering weight

    1090yds / 997m

    US 3 / 3.25mm circular in 40” / 100cm length or size needed to obtain gauge

    Tapestry needle

    22 sts & 58 rows = 4” / 10cm in garter stitch after blocking

    Check your stitch gauge and try to get close to 22 sts = 4” / 10cm or 23 or 24 sts = 4” / 10cm if you’re using the recommended Bilum Loli yarn. This will make a nice crisp fabric.

    If your gauge is a bit looser, you may require more yardage to complete the shawl.
