Just Beautiful Danielle. I would love to obtain a pattern for the Monarch Butterfly – I must admit I know how to knit but do more crochet but every since my mom and sister and her husband have passed – my niece and I look for monarchs – my niece released them at my sister’s funeral. They have special meaning to us. Would be a wonderful gift for her if I could learn to do it. I am willing to pay for a pattern if you have one. Thank you – your work is beautiful and amazing!
