The Knit Dragon Wing Cowl uses my knit Jacob’s ladder technique to create fun ridges, and then uses simple increases to give it shape. This pattern looks more challenging than it is. The trick is to make sure you use stitch markers, and to not drop the stitches until the pattern says to! This pattern was inspired by the way I draped the Dropped and Found scarf in one of the photos. I loved the look and wanted to make a cowl that had the same shape.
