Dragonfly Scarf :: Dragonfly Dreams Lace Scarf

HeartStrings knitting pattern #H79 Pin It

Dragonflies symbolize the illusion of light, thoughts and dreams in this knitted interpretation featuring lace, beads and Estonian gathered stitches.

This design combines lace eyelets, beads, decrease stitch outlines, gathered stitches, stockinette and garter stitch to provide the details of the dragonflies against a ground of reverse stockinette. The dreamy reflection of light and shadow is framed with columns of small beads and gathered stitches.

Yarn: 330 yards laceweight or light fingering weight
Suggested needles: US 4 (3.5 mm)
Beads: size 6/0 (4 mm diameter) for dragonfly body and head; size 8/0 (3 mm diameter) for dragonfly wings and scarf edges
Shown in: Buffalo Gold Lux color Malachite; Miyuki beads colors #18 Silver-lined Light Blue (dragonfly wings and scarf border) and #234 Metallic Gold-lined Crystal (dragonfly bodies)
Stitch instructions: charted and written
Construction: knitted flat in one piece from end to end
Beading Techniques: the larger beads are placed with a crochet hook; the smaller beads are pre-strung and pushed into place between purl stitches
Skill level: advanced or adventurous intermediate
