Chelonia was another pattern designed for New York Fashion Week 2017, and I fell in love with the sample the second it arrived from talented sample knitter Sandy Kolher. The drape on this Dragonfly yarn is something to behold, and our original plan to smock the cowl neck was instantly abandoned the second I tried it on. It was just right as-is. (I might just knit a second one for me and smock it… I like smocking!)
