This is a “thread lace” pattern utilizing a baby sport yarn and a fingering weight yarn (or 2 strands of serger thread) held together. What creates the lacey look on this dragonflies blanket is, where the foll graph indicates, knit/purl the fingering thread only and allow the sport yarn to fall behind stitches on knit rows and in front of stitches on purl rows; otherwise all other stitches are knit or purl with both yarns held together.
