Pattern Description:

When beginning to swatch for my latest shawl design, I wanted something simple that would showcase a beautiful skein of yarn - something that was easy, looked beautiful, but was still interesting to make - and of course, I wanted my traditional "any weight, any gauge" style. I think this design fits the bill nicely. I used Knit Picks Swish Tonal, a worsted weight yarn, for a quick crochet project, but my testers used yarn from lace to bulky.

I named this shawl the "Julia Heliconian Shawl" because the shape of the shawl reminds me of a butterfly, and the colors remind me of a Julia Heliconian butterfly. There are two versions of this shawl: a straight edged, more "traditional" shaped shawl, or a "batwing" shape, which wraps around your shoulders easily and will stay in place.

My name is Anastacia, and I am the scrap yarn/one skein queen. I buy my yarn mainly at yard sales/thrift stores, so I got used to making do with what I could find. So most of my patterns are designed to use up the odd skeins or leftovers in your life, and are geared towards beginner crocheters or those who just want a fast, easy, but still pretty item.
