Pay What Works: Inspired by the models of other designers that I trust and respect, I’m now offering a “Pay What Works” model. I like this model because it accurately reflects the pride that I take in all of my designs and the effort that I put into them, while staying true to my heart: that knitting should be accessible to everyone, no matter what their current life situation.

I’m offering coupon codes to let you “choose your price” for this pattern. Each of these codes will adjust the cost of the pattern to the final cost listed below (the cost listed is what you pay, not the discount amount). Please choose a price that you feel represents my work, but that also allows you to take joy in knitting this pattern without stress or financial burden.

To me, the lace edging reminds me of dragonflies. I love dragonflies, as they remind me that we should remember to spread our wings and fly a little sometimes. To that end, I named this shawl Libelula (dragonfly in Spanish) so that we can all remember to spread our wings every once in awhile. :o)

Final dimensions post blocking: 9” tall at deepest point x 65” wide.

And the gauge above is pre-blocking. Post blocking, the gauge was 7sts/inch.

Stitch markers are recommended for this project.

I recommend intermediate to expert knitters attempt this one. This is not a beginner level project.
