This is a downloadable pattern and is not eligible for returns and must be purchased separately from regular stock items. To view this pattern you will need an Adobe Acrobat (PDF) viewer.Flutterbye is a simple blackwork design featuring butterflies using metallic threads and beads to add texture and interest. It can be worked in many different colours. Variegated threads work well within this type of design. Blackwork embroidery has been in use since Tudor times and it is very satisfying to link the past with a modern design. Liz also includes a bonus 'Minibye' pattern: a smaller butterfly in blackwork.
