I'm obsessed!

I'm making my very first Swallowtail, and I love it. I did extra repeats to enlarge it, so I'm just now getting to the first Lily of the Valley border. I'm using Malabrigo laceweight, in a candy pink color. I hope the photo is okay--I took it in a rush this morning.

Your swallow tail looks wonderful so far!

That's awesome, would you mind sharing your adaptations when you're done? I'd like to make a larger one myself!

Hey, Laura--I did what was recommended here, which was adding a total of 60 stitches to the filler area, then the Lily of the Valley borders work out just fine, but the very last border doesn't, so you have to add stitches to the first plain row. I can't remember how many now (4 to each half, maybe?).

Hope that helps.
