Oh the trauma....

I finished one panel of Butterfly, and I am OUT OF YARN!!!!  The store where I bought the first batch was out of the meadow color and won't be getting more until summer, and none of the others around carry Rowan (or at least not KSH).  GRR.  Luckily I found one ball cheap on eBay!!!  But now I have to wait. 

This, of course, wouldn't have been a problem if the first attempt at butterfly hadn't ended up too small.  I bought 2 balls.  Made the first side, blocked it, it was still a little small.  I kept it anyway, since I could always finish it later and give it to someone as a gift or sell it.  But since I want my butterfly first, I started on a new one.  Got the hem frills for both sides and the body for one side done.  Now I have to wait for my yarn to come!

Okay, I've crossed into crazy knitter savant territory:




I can now officially knit the frill without even touching the pattern. 9_9

I got to that point too, since I did both of mine in a row before moving on to the body.

Oh, and I loved the tiny crochet hook method of attaching the beads. It saved me a lot of effort and yarn damage in the end.

Where did you find this crochet hook method? Is it mentioned in the pattern? Or somewhere else?

Thanks, Emms Cheesy

Juniper, your rowan is way awesome.  I love the alterations you made! I was checking out your block and noticed that you knit yours in the round.  I want to start this pattern and would also like to knit it in the round, but I'm a little unsure as to how this alters the pattern, or if it even does alter the pattern.  Do you have any advice for knitting in the round?

When I started my first Butterfly I tried all these little tricks to make the pattern continue uninterrupted in the round and ultimately realized that there was going to be an odd section in place of the side seams no matter what, so the simplest thing to do is place stitch markers where the edges would be were it knit flat and just follow the instructions as they're written.

Hi there,

I am making butterfly in dress form, and I think that it is coming out super long. Has anyone else had this trouble? I'm 5'2" and making the small size, and am at the waist shaping. Holding it to my waist makes it hang nearly to my ankles though!

Luckily I am not knitting it in the round, so I am stopping the side that I am in the middle of, and starting the other side while trying to tinker with the row count. If I were a more experienced knitter I would try to knit it from the top down, but I think that would be too confusing for me.

If anyone has any tips it would be greatly appreciated. But maybe I just have terrible gauge...

I've decided I really just have to make this. I'm ordering my book next week, but I can't afford the suggested yarn (esp. since I want to make the dress!). Any yarn suggestions? I read someone somewhere suggest Knitpicks' Alpaca Cloud; would I need to double strand that?

I read some where in the thread that some people were using THIS handpainted lace yarn... I think that juniper used it on 2 of her butterflies  (see the pretty orange one above) and that for the $5.95 you will get enough yarn to make 2 butterfly camis!

hope that helps
