Comments: I love this pattern. But I'm biased.

My own daughter designed and wrote it. I am SO proud of her!

This pattern is not for a beginning lace knitter. I would say it's for Advanced knitters.

Not for KIP knitting either. Every row is different. None of that lazy purling all the way across on the wrong side. ;-)

But oh so worth the effort! I'm entering it in the fair. I'll let ya know how it goes.

It is appropriate that butterfly wings should be fluttering in the breeze.

If you want to knit this pattern, it can be purchased from Ray at Knitivity.

Live long and prosper. \\//
