Dragonfly Bandanna and Shawl

This is the pattern for one of the Xmas presents that I made.

Dragonfly Shawl

  • Difficulty: moderate
  • Print

A classically shaped, light weight shawl that gives a nice touch of spring.

The design of the pattern comes out better with a lighter yarn. I got better results with a sports cotton.

Abbreviations:

  • ch = chain
  • spc = space
  • sk = skip
  • sl = slip
  • st(s) = stitch(es)
  • sc = single crochet
  • dc = double crochet

Special Instructions:

  • The beginning chain counts as the first stitch.
  • Instructions between ( ) or * are to be repeated the specified number of times.
  • Instructions between [ ] are all worked into the same stitch/space.

Special Stitches:

  • V-Stitch 1 (V-ST1): Work [dc, ch 2, dc] all in the same stitch/space.
  • V-Stitch 2 (V-ST2): Work [dc, ch 3, dc] all in the same stitch/space.
  • Picot: Ch 3, slip stitch in first chain.
  • Split Stitch: Working a split stitch means that you will be working into the center “V” of the stitch below, not into the top loops.

Weave in ends.

I made the shawl. Because of that, the ties and border really don’t work. They are intended for the bandanna. I ended up making my own border. This was my final product
