Butterfly Wings by Norichan Knits. Butterfly Wings is a hybrid shape; not quite half hexagon, not quite partial square, not quite semi-circular. I have found that I like the way this shape fits over my shoulders, and gives it a bit of flexibility with how to wear: draped from the front, back, slightly askew, etc. The shawl is easy to knit, with the majority of the shawl being just knits and purls. The colorwork is easily performed, only having to hold one strand of color at a time!

Gauge: 20 sts x 34 rows = 4” x 4” [10 cm x 10 cm] in stockinette stitch, blocked; 24 sts = 4” [10 cm] in stockinette stitch, unblocked (*Note: As yardage was close for CC, rough unblocked st gauge is listed so you can check your gauge as you go.)
