The Papillon Shawl designed by Marin Melchior is a stunning piece of knitting, made from a combination of short rows and self patterning yarn.

Using Urth Yarns' Harvest and Uneek Fingering does most of the colorwork for you, automatically blending symmetrically throughout your shawl. 

The pattern instructions are written in a new and unique method developed by Marin which most American knitters will be familiar with. The instructions let you know when you are on the right side or wrong side and gives extensive stitch counts. For some, it takes away a lot of the confusion sometimes found in other expressions of short rows.

There is a lot of counting and this is very important. It is not a great project to knit while only partially focused in the short row sections. But there is also a lot of plain, garter knitting employed. For every short row section, there are rows in between that are more simple to execute.

This Kit Includes
2x Uneek Fingering Weight Yarn
1x Harvest Fingering Weight Yarn
Papillon Butterfly Shawl Knitting Pattern- including Moth Variation
FREE Shipping

You Will Also Need
US 4 (3.5mm) Circular Needles 40" Long (You might also want a shorter circular to start)

Needle or Hook to Tuck in Ends

One size fits all, the finished shawl should be 33" (84cm) high at the center with a 77" (196cm) wide wingspan, but may vary depending on your final gauge.

To care for your shawl you can machine wash it on gentle cycle in cool water and lay it flat to dry.

Once you have completed your purchase, the digital pattern will be emailed to you in PDF format, and your yarn will be sent by first class post. If you include your Ravelry Username in the notes box when you check out, we can have it added to your pattern library.

I Love this pattern!

Had to read through the pattern a number of times to get my head wrapped around it but it is well done and a lot of fun to knit. The only drawback is that I wake up in the middle of the night wanting to start knitting on it again. ;)

Hi Mathilda, I think I spoke to you about this before, that we had already purchased the pattern for you by the time you let us know you didn't need it. I have resent the pattern email, it comes from Ravelry, so keep an eye out for that. Thank You Gena

Fantastic Butterfly Shawl

About 2/3 done. It has been very fun to see the shawl form and become more beautiful with all the colors. The black with colors looks like bizarre stained glass. It takes constant bookkeeping, counting precisely and marking the pattern with every line as I go. It takes a lot of stitch markers to mark every 10 stitches and I am using jewelry jump rings that I had on hand which works very well. They are very handy to keep the number of stitches easy to read and make the repetitions in the pattern easy to see and prevent errors. Using a 36 inch circular needle since that is what I had. Love working on this but can’t wait to see it completed in all it’s glory!
