What you need to know

Focus on the intarsia technique with our pretty critter

You can personalise Dawn Finney’s butterfly by adding buttons or embroidery to create a truly unique insect. Looking for a challenge? Turn this two-dimensional design into something more sculptural by knitting four additional wings, joining the two sides of each one together and stabilising them inside with florist wire. We love it when you take our patterns in new directions, so be sure to share the results with us!

Don't forget to save your PDFs to your computer or tablet device as soon as it has been downloaded.
