Every young Viking lad or lass needs a good tunic. And when that young Viking’s mother/father/auntie knits, shouldn’t it be a handknit tunic? (Of course it should.) Dragon Rider is so much fun to knit—all in one piece, from the top down, with minimal finishing and several small, fun details. Must love adventure (and short rows)!

Dragon Rider is knitted from the top down. The yoke is worked flat with raglan increases, seed stitch trim, and short rows to shape the neckline. After the increases, sleeves are separated and the body is worked in the round to the split hem, which is worked flat in two parts. Sleeves are worked in the round, with short rows to add a decorative element to the sleeve cuffs.
