I made a tutorial with the butterfly stitch and I used this stitch to make this beautiful Butterfly Girl Shawl. This shawl is not just an item I made, is a present for a best friend. I name it “Butterfly Girl Shawl” because this is how I call my friend : Butterfly.

So the perfect Butterfly Girl Shawl has to be with butterflies and with purple, her favorite color.

I used 1 skein of Katia Stella in color 74 (Lilac, green, blue). Is a socks yarn and the recommended needle is 4-5 but the yarn seems thinner and I used a 2 mm crochet hook.

The final measurements of the butterfly girl shawl are:

Width – 135 cm

High – 70 cm

Those measurements are without stretching. After blocking it will be bigger.

Gauge

After 10 rows my butterfly girl shawl was 21 cm width and 10 cm high.
