Draconis is an elegant semi-circular shawl inspired by Edith Nesbit’s wonderful collection of short stories The Book of Dragons. Hidden in the design you can find scales, claws, teeth and gouts of fiery breath. :)

The lace is designed to be easier than it looks, and to experiment with stitch bias, so it does fun things with shiny yarn.

It suits lace to fingering weight, and has some flexibility as to yardage. The pattern is written as approx 3/5 of a circle, however it can be adapted to alter the number wedges and use more or less yarn - see my project notes.

For further yardage flexibility, the final 30 rows are an optional extension - you can bind off on any row throughout this section and still have a decorative edge. (If you still have yarn leftover at this point, email me as I have a further extension chart in case of emergencies. :)

Pattern is worked on the RS only. WS rows are purled across.

The design can be worked entirely from the written pattern, or from charts with some notes.

Pictured shawl used 608m (665y) Vivid Fiber Arts Lux on 3.5mm (US size 4) needles and measures 138x65cm (55x25in) after blocking.

If beading, there are 48 beads per wedge, and 912 in total for the pattern as written.
