Pattern description from Vogue Knitting, Fall 2007:

When the light catches the metallic-shot ‘Goldrush’ by Plymouth Yarn Co. just so, a butterfly lace pattern takes wing. Paden knit this scarf from its provisional cast-on out in both directions and trimmed it with crocheted lace.

Long scarf in a lacy butterfly stitch with a crochet picot border.
