â€œFor some minutes it puffed away without speaking, but at last it unfolded its arms, took the hookah out of its mouth again, and said, â€˜So you think youâ€™re changed, do you?â€™â€Â? ~The Blue Caterpillar, Alice In Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
When I first conceived of this shawlette, I was not thinking of the Blue Caterpillar. As my shawl grew and the stitches swept from my needles, I began to think of it more and more. As a caterpillar changes into a butterfly, so too does our yarn into a beautifulshawl. This shawl is just as questioning as that Blue Caterpillar beginning with one pattern, making its way into steady stripes, and once again into 2 different stitch patterns before it reaches the end.
Both written and charted directions are included in this pattern. Please read the entire pattern before beginning.
