Haven’t gotten up the courage to make it yet.....the instructions look ominous
I just received this and have not had a chance to work it up yet, but I look forward to getting started on it! The yarn is beautiful and everything I have purchased from Paradise has been a joy!
While I do wish I'd had different color combo options for the kit, this is still a 5-star project. If I'd had to do it over again, I would have contacted customer service to see if I could match different colors into the kit, but this won't be the last time I make one of these, so next time I'll buy the yarn only. I'm not used to this type of knitting, but a few youtube videos later and I was ready to begin. It's such great fun! The resulting fabric is quite dense -- though I'd imagine that larger needles would produce an unreasonably wide shawl, so I've stuck with the recommended size 4. While it does split quite easily, the Uneek yarn is soft and bright, and I'm having a total blast watching how the colors build -- my friends are going to get a lot of unsolicited butterfly shawls for special occasions.
I have made 3 of these Butterfly Papillon shawls and posted the last one on fb.I had 3 offers from friends to buy it! Its a really fun pattern to knit.
Have not completed my project, but the yarn texture and colors are beautiful. Just as promised on the web site.
