Butterfly & Cocoon

Butterfly & Cocoon by Susan B. Anderson

So excited to receive our first donation for the 2017 Toy Drive! This adorable Butterfly & Cocoon by Susan B. Anderson is absolutely precious. The butterfly is worked in the round from the bottom up and stuffed as you go. The face detail, wings, and antennae are added after. The cocoon is worked from the bottom up in the round, then bound off at the beginning of the hood and continued in garter stitch. The top of the hood is grafted with stitches kept live at center of the good to make a I-cord loop.

It’s that time of year again! For the past few years, L & B Yarn Co. along with our generous customers have donated hand crafted, stuffed dolls and animals to Positive Tomorrows, an elementary school for homeless children. Over the last few years, we have collected dozens upon dozens of adorable animals, bringing smiles to children who need them. We will be collecting the toys now through August 31st. For each donation, you will be entered into a drawing to receive a $25 L & B Yarn Co. gift card!
