Australia is nearing the end of Spring and heading towards Summer. We will soon see Dragonflies flitting about yelling ‘Summer is here’, as they herald the beginning of the long hot Summer.

I have done many different variations on patterns that include Dragonflies, but I have to say I am pretty proud of this design. It was a lot of work to get it here, to the publishing stage, and I believe it was worth every bit of effort.

With Purple being my favourite colour, I just had to make this beauty using Scheepjes Whirl in Lavenderlicious and Whirlette in Grappa.

Middle: 3.5mm Clover Armour Hook.

My pattern testers have had this pattern for the past 5 weeks. They have been sorting out all the little boo, boos (errors) and helping to make the pattern as fabulous as it is.

  1. OMG, we are of kindred Spirit. I too love Purple, is there any other colour, anyway, found you Via a Member of one Australian FB Crochet Group, can’t recall which one as I belong to a few. Have a Niece that cheekily asked me to crochet her a throw for a glorious Peacock chair she has in her Bedroom. Anyway, I do really hate being asked to make anything, as they take me a long time and NO ONE appreciates the time and expense and really well, effort that goes into handmade. But in a previous life :), I made all nieces and nephews a Patchwork Quilt, well hers is started and will never actually be finished for her, not her colours or taste anymore, SO at first when I was asked, I felt on the spot and pressured and actually said “most likely no”, but very quickly came around, (because of the no quilt gift yet) and the very next day the FB Member posted her glorious work of art, wish I could credit her, but brain dead. So Sharna is a Dragonfly Lover, I showed her the pattern and like most of her generation, took her a week to reply, well, I bought the pattern anyway, ordered Yarn, using “Alara Turquoise” from ICE yarns, and a 4.00mm hook. Only took 6 days for yarn to arrive, and today am enjoying the process so far, creating this gorgeous pattern. They didn’t have any Cake yarn suitable for Sharna, she wanted plain turquoise, so that is what she will get, eventually. 🙂 <3 Thank you, for a beautiful and so far easy to understand pattern.

    1. Glad you like it. Purple is by far my most favourite colour. I have another pattern in testing at the moment with dragonflies in it and using Whirl in Shrinking violet. As for the turquose, that is not a colour I go for but I did the shawl version of flight of the dragonfly in Salted caramel matcha which basically torquoise and it did come up nicely.
