Add a festive touch to a plain jumper or pop over your coat for that Boxing Day stroll.
The whole set takes about 2 hours to make!
One small Butterfly Loom
50g Wendy Shimmer – Red (2107)
50gWendy Shimmer – Nickel (2112)
Small amount of 2 ply for knotting (approx. 1 m per motif)
2 large buttons for the collar
Using both yarns together and wrapping one row, make up 10 motifs following the instructions included in the Butterfly Loom pack or on the CD.
Use the ladder technique to knot the motifs.
The collar takes 6 motifs, the cuffs 2 each.
For the collar: following the instructions on the CD slip stich the 6 motifs together in a line joining the knots on the back to leave a frill on the front side at each join. Using the butterfly braid technique tidy the two short ends. On the front side attach the two large buttons and loop through the opposite end to complete the circle to make the collar.
For the cuffs: Using the same technique join the two motifs together to create a tube which makes the cuff. Turn front side out.
Fru-fru out and pop over your jumper!
Note: I have quite slim hands, so if you need something larger add another motif; if this is too large insert a small piece of elastic inside using the knots as your anchor points.
All instructions are in the booklet or on the welcome CD.
