And so a new series of free designs gets under way – six butterflies, with a hint of summer in the colourway.
I love the vibrancy of cerise mixed with orange, and whipping green chain with snow white creates a candy-striped outline to the wings. If you're going with your own colour scheme, use any two contrasting colours for the whipped chain to create the desired effect. And stem stitched clockwise gives a smoother line.
Download the pattern for Flutter By 1 from the free patterns section of my website. And go to the useful links page for stitch books and online stitch libraries.
Update: I originally wrote to stitch stem anti-clockwise, but French 75's comment made me realise my mistake. Sorry about that.
