Here be dragons, or so says the legend – though when you climb Drachenfels today you’ll find only the ruins of an ancient stronghold.

Stave off the chill wind with this cosy shawl, which pays homage to the dragon of lore with a slipped garter colorwork pattern that hints of scales.

It’s worked in garter stitch from tip to edge, then neatly finished with I-cord bind-off.

Asymmetrical increases create an elongated triangle shape, and Rosy Green Wool’s Cheeky Merino Joy will keep you toasty warm.
