The inspiration for this design was a photo of an Eastern Tailed Blue Butterfly.
I was captivated by the colors in the wings and just had to design a butterfly blanket. The blanket could also easily be a wall hanging, as it is so graphic.
Like the other blankets in this series, it is knit with doubled strands of Cascade Yarns Eco+ Peruvian wool yarn, with a touch of doubled Cascade 220 for the duplicate stitched gold wing spots.
14 sts and 20 rows = 4" (10 cm) with 2 strands yarn held together and size 10.5 ndls or size to give gauge.
