Libellula is a quick and fun knit. It is worked seamlessly from the top down, making it easy to adjust the length to your liking. As a mostly Stockinette stitch design, it is relaxing to knit. The contrasting color bands allow you to use an odd skein from in your stash, too. Enjoy your Fall knitting!
