From the pattern description: Dragonflies symbolize the illusion of light, thoughts and dreams in this knitted interpretation featuring lace, beads and Estonian gathered stitches.
This design combines lace eyelets, beads, decrease stitch outlines, gathered stitches, stockinette and garter stitch to provide the details of the dragonflies against a ground of reverse stockinette. The dreamy reflection of light and shadow is framed with columns of small beads and gathered stitches.
Both charted and written stitch instructions are provided.
