These lovely Art Nouveau dragonflies are sure to bring a smile to your face!

This cowl is the companion to the Dragonfly Mitts.

The ribbed hem, with contrast color edging, segues into the scale and dragonfly pattern. Simple ribbing, again with a contrast color edge, tops off the cowl.

Three versions are offered: Short, Tall/Narrow (shown), and Tall/Wide.

Short and Tall cowl repeats are fully charted. Magenta guidelines are placed to help you keep your place on the chart. The pattern is designed to keep floats short as much as possible, though occasionally there are longer floats.
