Dragonfly’s Path is a crescent-shaped shawl with long ends to warm your shoulders or wrap around your neck as a scarf.

The body of the shawl is squishy garter stitch, finishing with a simple purl ridge. The edging reminds me of a dragonfly flitting along the shore of a lake. The dragonfly (a pretty cable) meanders back and forth across a garter-stitch background, creating a softly scalloped edge along the way.

Enjoy yourself as you follow your little dragonfly’s adventure!

Fully written instructions are provided, along with three optional charts.

Yarn requirements

Approximately 625 yds/572 m (710 yds/649 m, 810 yds/741 m) solid or semi-solid fingering-weight yarn


US size 4/3.5 mm circular needle (or size necessary to achieve gauge), preferably at least 34”/86 cm in length
9 (10, 11) stitch markers
Optional: 3 removable stitch markers
Cable needle (optional, because cables can be worked without a cable needle)
Tapestry needle for weaving in ends
Pins for blocking


The body of Dragonfly’s Path is knitted from the top down. Stitches are regularly added at each end so that the piece grows into a crescent shape. Once the body is complete, a scalloped edging is knitted sideways and attached to the live stitches of the body as you knit.
