When I spent watching people paragliding in Eastern Switzerland, I saw lots of butterflies. The canton of Appenzell has for „butterfly“ a special word:
This inspired me to design the triangular shawl. The body of the Flickflauder shawl is knitted in stockinette, surrounded by a lace border with butterflies. The lace is knitted on both sides. Therefore it‘s recommended for intermediate knitters.
The lace includes gathered stitches. In the pattern is a tutorial included how to knit this specific stitch.
The instructions are charted and written.

• 1 skein in Purple Velvet (main colour MC)
57 g / 200 m / 218 yards used for the sample
• 1 skein in Küken (contrasting colour CC)
80 g / 280 m / 306 yards used for the sample
I recommend to use the lighter colour as the contrasting colour, as it will be used for the lace.
