Butterfly Fling Crochet Shawl

Butterfly Fling Crochet Shawl

The Butterfly Fling Crochet Shawl is fun, flirty and fast to create! This crochet pattern is best for intermediate crocheters due to the intricacies of the lacy pattern, but the end result is delightfully patterned and oh-so-stylish. Work this up in any color for your new go-to shawl, and the next time you're getting ready to leave the house, toss this beauty in your bag or throw it on for some instant and effortless style. 
From the Blogger: "This is the first in my Fling Series which is named because you just fling it on, add a pin and you're ready to go! This project uses a really interesting and unusual stitch pattern producing fabulously lacy results."

I love the delicate, lacy look of this shawl. The designer has worked up this example in a thinner, mercerized cotton which as she freely admits, might be difficult for some crafters to use. She suggests something that I frequently do myself, i.e. work up at least a swatch using a larger yarn. To me, thats the best way to master a particular stitch set or technique before moving on to working with finer yarns.

I LOVE everything this designer puts out, and if you love this one, then you need to see the five or six other flings she created in this series. They're refreshingly colourful and range from very lacy and open, to something you can wear in colder temperatures. This designer ROCKS!

This Butterfly Fling Crochet Shawl is perfect to wear over a spaghetti-strapped gown, appropriate for either evening or day time function. It cannot provide enough cover on cold days. I think this is more suitable merely as accessory.

This is so pretty. Add to that the fact that it's such an open design, you can wear it here in Florida. There aren't many that qualify for that. And it's very easy. After reading thru the instructions it's not hard. By the way I always encourage beginners to read thru a pattern before attempting it. It saves tears and frustrations later.

Pretty, pretty, pretty! I love lacy shawls and this one has such a delicate stitch, so airy. This would make a lovely summer wrap. Pretty over a sundress with a bit of tanned skin showing through the lacy pattern. In cream or white. Beautiful!

I wish I had found this pattern earlier. With the stitches being so open, it is probably betterfor the spring or summer. But, I still may make it soon as a gift because I really love the stitch pattern.

This is gorgeous! The color is lovely. It would make a great summer date-night outfit.

After reading this pattern for the Butterfly Fling Crochet Shawl, I can't wait to go buy the yarn and start making it! It looks so spring inviting. The pattern has a few steps that are so different then any pattern I've seen before and I look forward to trying it. Thank you for this free pattern.
