Recently my friend’s mother generously gave me a giant bag of yarn she wasn’t going to use. Included inside were a few balls of butterfly yarn. At first I wasn’t sure what to do with it- it wasn’t nearly substantial enough for a scarf or hat. I decided to layer it over some heavy yarn and make this fast (around 2 hours) and easy ribbed beanie.
