Double Butterfly Scarf
This original design by Daniel Zondervan, designer of The Crochet Crowd, was created using a butterfly stitch but then a second butterfly was added. This made the scarf wider and more flexible in how you can wear the design. Follow along with the free pattern of this scarf.
The original Scarf within a Scarf pattern was created. We wondered what would the scarf look like if we doubled the width to create two butterflies across the scarf. This is our experiment turned into an amazing crochet creation.
I used a transitional colour yarn with this to really kick this scarf into an amazing concept. Some yarns really can make you look creative, even when the stitches are so simple.
If you would like a scarf that has only one butterfly across, you can use the Scarf within a Scarf Pattern.
