Butterfly Baby Blanket
A Japanese butterfly lace inspired blanket featuring an extra wide rib pattern with a row of butterflies at each end. Most of the knitting is simple with the textured butterfly lace pattern to add interest.

I wanted to design something for a baby girl and found this very delicate pattern but also added the plain extra-wide rib pattern because I liked the way it flowed on from the design.
