Butterfly Dress 

Butterfly dress is a pretty lace dress knitted using Rowan Kidsilk Haze, mohair and silk yarn.

Butterfly Shrug

To make Butterfly Dress even more versatile, I’ve designed this little, matching beaded shrug – turning the strappy dress into a short-sleeved version!.


Or – over the Butterfly Dress you could wear this little capelet, which uses the same lace border and has small glass beads knitted in.

The patterns can be purchased individually or all together as a PDF booklet.

Lace vest

If the Butterfly Dress is not for you, then this vest is a short version which has the option of a beaded neckline. It could also be teamed up with the Shrug or Capelet.

Lace shawl

Using the same simple lace pattern as the other pieces, this pretty shawl is easy to knit and a good starter project for lace beginners.
