I have been seeing a lot of beautiful butterflies in our backyard lately, thanks to the previous owner who planted lots of flowers that butterflies love. I've even seen a few monarch butterflies, which are my favorite. This yarn colorway was inspired by those beautiful butterflies.
The colorway includes several shades of orange and thin stripes of black too.
I dyed this yarn on Squoosh DK yarn base, which is made of extra-soft merino.
Monarch Butterfly on Squoosh DK
250 yards / 4 ounces / 4 plies
100% Extra-Fine Superwash Merino
Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry.
Monarch Butterfly would look great with Little Black Dress and Eggplant or Phantom of the Opera for a fantastic Halloween combo.
I have included a couple photos of a hat I knit with Wonderful Worsted to give you an idea of how it will work up.
