You may knit this using the written instructions or from the chart. Charts are read beginning in the lower right corner; Row 1 and odd rows are read right to left and Row 2 and even rows are read left to right. On Row 1 and odd rows, the white squares are purled and the grey squares are knit; on Row 2 and even rows, the white squares are knit and the grey squares are purled.

There is also a chart of the butterfly alone; you can use this to add the butterfly to a scarf, sweater, or any other knitting project.

You could also knit the butterfly in one color and the background in a different color if you wish.
