Fritillary

by Aparna Rolfe
The Pearl-bordered Fritillary is a butterfly
whose orange wings are adorned with black spots
and rows of pearly markings along the edges.
This advanced-beginner level triangular shawl
is worked outwards from the center of the top edge,
the delicate lace and iridescent beads
capturing the spirit of a Fritillary butterfly’s wingspread.

Finished Size 56” along top edge, 29” from top edge to center point.
Gauge First 11 rows are 6” along top edge and 3” from top edge to center point after blocking.
Yarn Filatura Di Crosa Nirvana, color 27, 3 skeins or approximately 900 yd lace weight yarn.
Hook E/4 (3.50 mm) or as required to obtain desired drape.
Beads 2072 8/0 seed beads.
Notions Beading wire or crochet hook to place beads, Needle to weave in ends.
Notes
• The pattern uses US crochet terminology, special stitches are listed in the Glossary section.
Follow either the written instructions or the charts.
• The beads are added during crocheting, not pre-strung on the yarn. I recommend this beading
method (Ravelry account required).
• The edging uses approximately 25% of the total yarn for the shawl.
