Vacation Butterfly Shawl - Smooshy with CashmereDream In Color
This is a variation of the popular Butterfly-Papillon Shawl. It is similar but has some changes to help with a few things in the pattern that could be tweaked for this version. These include but are not limited to a 3 sts garter border, a different ending section of short rows, & a different bottom edge. I named it Vacation Butterfly. You have a few places at the start to pay attention (Packing), but then LOTS of middle that is garter with repetitious increases on the right side and nothing on the wrong side (Travel). Then, the end has most of the effort and pop, with short rows and a special finish.
This version uses 4 Skeins of Smooshy with Cashmere.
