Dragons appear in so many stories, from all over the world, and they have always fascinated me. They are magical, can spit fire, can fly, and depending on the lore, they have many other fascinating abilities. So, I decided to create a few designs inspired by them.

Forest dragon features the same dragon-scale pattern as the other designs, with two different edgings. One side has cables, which look like twisted vines, the other has a leaf edging. Due to the nature of the leaf edging, the stitch count changes from row to row, and the pattern repeat travels over 20 rows.

I recommend the pattern for intermediate lace knitters or adventurous beginners.

Special thanks to Gannet Designs, who designed the stitch pattern for the dragon-scale lace.
