Like it’s namesake, this lovely shawl is inspired by the wings of the fritillary butterfly. They have a beautiful, lacy texture with a richly textured edge and an intricate pattern of denser and airier sections. This is a great example of how a crochet project can be inspired by and interpret beautiful patterns found in nature. I’m particularly impressed by the beadwork in one of the examples, which shows you just how much room this pattern leaves for your imagination to run wild. The shawl from the photo completely follow the Fritillary Shawl pattern except a border, which has been changed by the autor. A link to the free pattern of the shawl is at the end of the post.
