This scarf or cowl is knit in a straight line from end to end. It begins with a few rows of ribbing with buttonholes, continues with a cable and lace butterfly pattern, and then the second half is knit all in ribbing making this a fun but quick and relatively easy knit.

Available in the Natural History of Knitting Yarn Adventure club. Our theme for 2019 is Maria Sibylla Merian’s Garden Flowers. Maria Sibylla Merian 
 (1647–1717) was a German-born naturalist 
 and scientific illustrator. She was one of the 
 first naturalists to observe insects directly. 
 She painted from life, published her own
 books of embroidery patterns and scientific studies, and travelled with her daughter to 
 South America to learn about plants and 
 insects there.
