I’ve done five Butterfly shawls for the Fall season. I decided to turn to my attention to colder weather and decided to go with a warmer stitch with lots of texture! I originally thought this would be a shawl we’d share, but using thicker stitches really shrunk this shawl’s design, unlike the more lacy shawls I’ve done so far. It fits her perfectly!
This was the full 1000 meter yarn cake. I can tell already that if I make a bigger version of this design that it would be more of a wrap than a shawl before my yarn cake ran out.
I also made a page just for the Butterfly Shawls so you can go see all of them encase you’ve missed any. ALL of the Butterfly Shawls

For this project you will need:
YARN: I used a Yarn cake from YarnArt cake
Content: 55% Organic Cotton 45% Anti Pilling Acrylic
- Ball Weight: 250 g (8.8 oz)
- Yarn Weight: 1 : Fingering
- Yarn Length: 1000 m (1093 yd)
YARN: I used is a 1000 meter Yarn cake from YarnArt’s “Flower” collection. #266
They sell several YarnArt “Flowers” skeins on Amazon. Take a look at the link to see all the color they have in stock at the present.
Gauge is 2 sts per cm or 5 sts per Inch
This shawl measures:
Wide 87 cms \ 34 inches
Tall 46 cms \ 18 inches
I had my daughter take a picture of me wearing it so that you can see that it fits around my neck just fine, the shawl just needs to be longer. All you need to do is keep crochet with another yarn cake to make it adult size.
TIP when using Yarn Cakes: Add a ball of yarn in the middle before storing. It will prevent the cake from collapsing.
Here’s a fun video showing you more pictures from this pattern.
