Emerald Isle Butterfly Shawl
"Since the last 2 shawls were so successful, I thought you would want another big shawl to crochet. The Bat-terfly shawl is beautiful but I really like those plus-size shawls that are so great for all sizes! My daughter is 11 but she still grabbed up the shawl all the same and started wrapping it around herself in many different ways! It can be a dress for her or a cowl, scarf, a big poncho, or even a small poncho! For this project you will need 4 mm hook or size G hook. For the yarn, I used a Yarn cake from YarnArt 'Flowers' yarn, color 272 Content 55% Organic Cotton 45% Anti Pilling Acrylic Ball Weight 250 g (8.8 oz) Yarn Weight 1 Fingering Yarn Length 1,000 m (1,093 yd)."
