A butterfly brought the summer

This bright turquoise yarn was calling out for a cheerful summer companion. Beads in water tones, as well as intriguing orange and purple, are knitted along with the yarn and cannot escape from the shrug.

Stringing the beads onto the yarn in the right order according to the "master plan" took a whole hour.

The stitch pattern is very simple, just some reaccurring double holes. The bamboo and cotton yarn feels really soft and light.

The butterfly can change itself according to the light direction and conditions.
