Dawn Brocco tells the story behind her Butterfly Baby Blanket..."The inspiration for this design was a photo of an Eastern Tailed Blue Butterfly. I was captivated by the colors in the wings and just had to design a butterfly blanket. The blanket could also easily be a wall hanging, as it is so graphic. Like the other blankets in this series, it is knit with doubled strands of Cascade Yarns Eco+ Peruvian wool yarn, with a touch of doubled Cascade 220 for the duplicate stitched gold wing spots." Recommended for an Intermediate level knitter.
