Unfortunately, I don’t have written out instructions for the fronts.:oops: The easiest way to explain it (or so I hope ):
Before continuing… Note: It takes 5 sts to make a butterfly. The actual butterfly stitch is K2tog, yo, K1, yo, SKP.
If the number of BO sts at the beginning of the row cuts into the 5 sts where you’d start the first butterfly, just don’t do a butterfly there. Skip it and do knit sts instead. How specifically? Skip the butterfly and knit however many sts remain of what would’ve been the butterfly. Then finish the pattern by doing the K5. This will get you to the place where you can start the next butterfly and begin the pattern again. When I knit this sweater, I got caught up in counting the sts at the edge to try and figure out the pattern. But in the end, I found that it was much easier to just look at the butterflies from previous rows to know when to start the first butterfly. Other than the butterfly sts, all you’re doing is stockinette st. Also, the butterflies alternate. In figuring out how to align mine, I looked below to previous butterflies and used the 5 in-between knit sts (the ones between butterflies) as a reference point.
I noticed on the pattern picture, Amy fit in one butterfly at the top of each of the fronts. I’ve attached a picture of my bumble bee sweater so you can see how I was able to follow the pattern on the smaller size. Technically, I might’ve been able to fit in another butterfly in at the tops of the fronts like Amy, but I chose not to.
Hope this information helps!
