The Dragon Fruit One Skein Shawl is knit with Zen Yarn Garden’s Serenity Silk + lace yarn. The shawl only uses 330 yards of lace weight yarn and 186 size 6 beads. This is a great project for beginning lace knitters who are new to beading.
The Dragon Fruit Shawl pattern comes with written instructions and charts and has been professionally tech edited and test knit for accuracy.
The Dragon Fruit Shawl is traditional triangle shawl knit from the neck to the long edge. The shawl has a knit-on border which means it’s not necessary to bind off 205+ stitches at once! The bold knit-on edging is worked back and forth over 20 stitches and a k2tog with the main body stitches every other row eliminates the large bind off stitch by stitch. This is a great shawl for beginner Lace Knitters.
Yarn substitution may result in a change in estimated yardage, gauge and finished size of your individual project.
