"I get a lot of those fun home decor catalogs in the mail. I love pulling ideas from them. I noticed that each of them had lovely solid color throws and I couldn't help making some of my own. I used an easy-to-find worsted weight yarn and an easily memorizable stitch pattern to make a series of five fabulous and quick throws. This one resembles butterflies in a delicate and unusual lace stitch pattern that makes the project super quick to stitch!"

It took me a while but I was finally able to see the magical butterfly in this throw. This one will probably become a family heirloom because of the design.

It still amazes me the amount of talent we have out there. I would never in a million years be able to create a work of art like this on my own. There are only four rows of pattern that just gets repeated and you wind up with a beauty like this. I love this design. It could easily be a table cloth as well.

This says easy and I thought yeah right. Then I read the directions and surprise, it really is easy. It's also very pretty. It's different in design which caught my attention. It's light and dainty looking. A very feminine style throw. Or make it in navy or brown for the man's den in your life.

This is a lovely pattern. It is a bit different which makes it all the more lovelier. You have to pay attention to the pattern but once doing the rows a few times it should become easier, especially when you see that lovely design. I am not fond of triple crochet stitches but it is necessary for the pattern. I think a solid color yarn would be the best bet for this throw. Thank you for the pattern.

Oh my gosh, this is so pretty. I'm envisioning a field of wildflowers with butterflies all over every bloom. Would make such a statement piece.

It does resemble butterflies! How clever and cute.
