This is one of three lace accessories in my Dragonfly Days collection. All three patterns may be purchased together as a discounted ebook for $12.

Named after blue damselflies, the Enallagma shawl combines eye-catching lace with restful garter stitch. The lace section is worked straight without shaping, then gradual decreases are worked along one side to create the shawl’s asymmetrical shape.
