Yarn: DROPS Karisma 100% Superwash DK Wool in Black

Needles: 4mm / 6 US

Gauge:  4.5 stitches and 7 rows per inch

Stitch Pattern: Butterfly Motif

Source: BW4, p. 234.

Comments: Wouldn't this look cute as the back panel of a little girls shrug/cropped cardigan?  Motifs like this are really good for demonstrating decrease/yarn-over combinations worked on the wrong side of the fabric.  The slanty lines they make (when combined with right-side decreases) are so much more defined than when you work them only on the right side.
