Papillon...Butterfly Scarf for a Friend

Papillon is the French word for "Butterfly."  Le Papillon was a fantastic ballet with two acts and only four scenes in the 1860's.  The scarf pattern is from  You'll enjoy the easy three row repeat while crocheting this "stitch."  There are two rows that you single crochet straight across and then on the third row you crochet half way across and gather the two rows below and then continue across with the double crochets to the next set of single crochets to make the papillons.  I added to 3-D butterfly motif to the bottom of this scarf.  To keep the scarf together poke the entire butterfly motif through one of the openings in the stitches. The friend who I gifted this scarf to loves butterflies and found the perfect sweater to wear with it on her special vacation to Seattle.
