Knitted Butterfly

Knitted Butterfly

I have reached an age where lots of my friends are growing their families. One of them recently had a very cute baby boy! I had knitted and crocheted a few small gifts as you can imagine and suddenly realised I had not made anything for her older daughter. Not wanting to invoke any kind of sibling rivalry I knitted up this butterfly thinking it would be quick to make. I confess I found the chart (for shaping)  hard to follow and struggled a little on the intarsia.

I like the finished result though and it was good way to practise some more challenging techniques in a short amount of time and not using too much yarn. I hope you like him too!
