Notes From the Designer:
Nothing says new beginnings like a butterfly. If you have observed one up close, you have experienced their beauty first hand, and if you have been lucky enough to see a flutter of butterflies, it is awe inspiring indeed! Palometa is a large, striped shawl featuring the double crochet puff stitch shaped to resemble butterflies in flight.
Choose your colors and get ready to create so you can wrap yourself in the comfort of your Palometa shawl as you keep moving forward on your own beautiful journey in life.

“Happiness is like a butterfly: the more you chase it, the more it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder.” -Henry David Thoreau
Lovely pattern. Can't wait for my yarn to arrive to make a start on it :)
Easy to follow pattern. Works up quickly. I used a DK Baah yarn with 4 color changes. I really love this wrap.
Maby you can show the repeat? I am not sure that I understand it. Parenthesis and brackets in the same sentence, do I do them both in the repeat row? I hope that you can understand my bad spelling, sorry.
Beautiful pattern easy to follow
Wish it had a chart. Learning to read patterns.
I really enjoyed this pattern very easy to make for an advanced beginner and it took no time at all.
The pattern is very clear, well written and easy to follow. It was a pleasure to have it and my Palometa was made as a present and very well received. Beautiful!
Thanks so much for this excellent pattern
I’m very happy with this pattern- thank you so much
Very easy and beautiful pattern. I am a first time crocheter with design and this pattern encouraged me to make more. I finished the shawl in six days. I felt so happy and proud of myself. Thankyou for beautiful design.
But I wouldn't expect anything less!!
Piacevole, da serenità

I just love the shawls, i actually use them for bed throws
I love this pattern. I love making shawls, this pattern is not only beautiful but seems very easy to follow. I'm still working on it but I'm sure the finished product will be spectacular as all of your other patterns.
The stitch work is gorgeous.
All the patterns such as this one are very well written, because as a begginer I could do the piece without any trouble or doubt.
