Mariposa was first published in The Knitter Magazine issue 33

Mariposa (butterfly) is a cross between a triangular shawl and a scarf which is perfect for chilly summer evenings. The sides of Garter Stitch gives it some weight while the lace pattern gives it it's drape. To complement the body, every ruffle in the border has one repeat of the butterfly lace pattern. The shawl is worked top down in the Garter Stitch lace pattern with an increasing Garter Stitch border, to get a nice contrast. The border part can be started at any RS row, making this an highly adaptable pattern.

Yarn: 567 yds/520 m in lace weight.
Sample is made in Dutch Knitting Design's Tulp (55% silk, 45% cashmere; 400yrd(365m)/55gr)
Needles: US4/3.75 mm circular of length 40 in/100 cm or other size to obtain gauge.

Not really important, though it will effect finished size.

Directions are given for 1 size 171 cm /67.5 inch wide and 42 cm /16.5 in long.

Thanks for watching! Happy shopping!
