I used the butterfly stitch to make an incredibly warm, fleece lined hat. Just in time, too- it snowed a ton here today!
I think that the butterflies look like spiders, and I think it is very cool to have a spider hat, so that's what I'm calling it!
I learned the butterfly stitch from watching Knitty Gritty (Flirty Skirty)
and I discovered a hat pattern that uses the butterfly stitch after I'd started making this hat. (Butterfly hat)
. The basic hat pattern
The shape of the hat is what I like best- it covers my ears and is longer in the back than in the front so I can pull it down without covering my eyes. The fleece lining makes it toasty warm, even when the wind is blowing snow everywhere!
