Lacewing socks
Lacewing uses a simple 12-st lace repeat that you’ll quickly have memorised, with slipped sts creating the dragonfly body ‘stem’. It’s my take on dragonfly argyle.

This bouncy, beautifully hand-dyed yarn brings to mind the iridescent colours of sleek dragonfly bodies, as they flit in the sun. Shown in: Azure Damsel colourway.
