Jaycee Butterfly Shawl Free Crochet Pattern
The Jaycee butterfly shawl is a wonderful project that combines lepidopteran shapes set out in gorgeous, lacy voids and delicate, pastel hues that wonderfully match the shapes and the texture. The gentle color transitions are very reminiscent of those on the common blue butterfly, but so much more colorful and varied. The shawl is made complete with tassels on the corners. While not the easiest project, an ambitious beginner can take this on and really up their crochet game.
