Dragonfly on Midsummer Pond is a heavily beaded lace design for intermediate or advanced knitters. The pattern includes both written and charted instructions. There is a circle version (5 panels) and a 3 panel semicircle version. The pattern includes directions for the use of The Unique Sheep Gradiance yarns, both in lace weight and in fingering weight.

The full circle uses 5490 beads, and the three panel version uses 3314 beads. The bead count has been broken down by region: Center water lily, pond weed, center of dragonfly body, outer edge of dragonfly body, dragonfly eyes, dragonfly wings, and outer water lily (shore). It can be knit with up to 7 colors of beads, if one is feeling ambitious. There are a couple of rows with up to 5 colors on them.

This pattern will also work with no beads at all.
