The design of this Filigree Dragonfly Shawl Stick is unique compared to other sticks. Rather than have the stick extend from the end of Dragonfly's abdomen, the stick is attached to the Dragonfly's head, so that the ornament isn't top heavy. The stick runs underneath the Dragonfly's body, with a space between the two into which the knitwear nests, creating an incredibly stable and beautiful effect. The Dragonfly appears to have alighted delicately on the knitwear. And who isn't delighted by that!
