Hi roxie29, Which Butterfly Hat are you referring to? I found the Monarch Lyon Hat but the link is directing me to the appropriate pattern. Thanks!

roxie29, I am having the same problem. At least it isn't just me!!!! I thought I was having a "senior moment".

I couldn't open the butterfly hat kept getting the flit and float scarf? My ggrandchildren are into can you help? thanks

I found this in the instructions: Note: Instead of waste yarn, I used the cable from an interchangeable needle set. This makes it easy to work the second half of the scarf without needing to remove waste yarn from the CO edge.

The pattern is wonderful....well written and thought out. But as any lace knitter would lines are part of the process.

This is a lovely pattern, there is only on problem. You need to place a waste thread at the top of the first ruffle. She left that out of the instruction. I did not notice till I went to start the body of the scarf and had to tear out the ruffle and start over. Otherwise produced a goregous scarf.
