Inspired by sea creatures real and imagined, the Sea Dragon Shawl is knit from side to side, with short rows forming a shallow crescent shape. Its comfortable proportions are perfect for wrapping around the neck scarf-style or wearing around the shoulders. Choose between a small or large Sea Dragon Shawl and showcase your favourite yarn: go crazy with your leftover yarn stash and knit each segment in a different colour, use a gradient or variegated yarn, or go with your favourite solid colour combination.

Suitable for adventurous beginners, techniques include: simple short rows, picking up stitches, simple increases and decreases.

Sea Dragon now has a sibling, the Sea Urchin Shawl. Both patterns are available as a set for $9, simply add both patterns to your cart by clicking here and the discount will automatically apply; previous purchases of either will be discounted the amount already paid.
