This is a really big square as far as squares go. To me, this will be a massive baby blanket. I love the color pink and I am also fond of butterflies. I would enjoy having this just for myself. If nothing else as a throw pillow to place on the guest room bed.

Another take along project. I love to work projects that are made with square or motifs. The do take a bit longer to complete because of the extra steps but I always love the finished product. Thanks for sharing.

OMGoodness! I am so SO angry! and it's not your fault. :/ Coats and clark have changed their website so much its ANNOYING and this particular pattern is NOT THERE! Please, PLEASE, if anyone has downloaded this pattern before they (C&C) screwed up a good thing please send it to me! My daughter is due Aug 16 and I really want to make this for her!

I saw an afghan on redheart.com that looks exactly the same. Hope this helps

My best friend's Mom has been a Mom to me ever since my own Mom died from breast cancer in 2008. Maggie will be 90 on November 29th and she just LOVES butterflies. I will be making this throw in Blue for her birthday... So beautiful.

i am making this one for my granddaughters
