Here is a big beautiful butterfly to show off! I used normal worsted weight yarn, the filet stitch and an I/6mm hook. You work the chart vertically for ease of construction. It goes fast and you can probably make it in a weekend

And here it is full length


For the free pattern go here:

Looks cool!  I bet a multi-colored version, particularly the wings, would be neat-o too.

I made this in a solid color but I'll bet a multi colored yarn would work. I know there is a way to use 2 colors of yarn, like graphghan. Maybe I can figure it out. Smiley
