The sea is wide and vast and does not like to be restrained. For those of you who wish to conquer the sea, or Pashmina scarves in this instance, the Sea Dragon’s Tail will guide you over and under the waves. Just when you think the bleak depths will overwhelm you, the pattern changes and a thrilling pulse of adventure will send you to the heart of the great ocean or, as we like to call it, the bind off.

The Sea Dragon’s Tail combines the concept of mosaic knitting with simple lace to create a beautiful pashmina fit for a quick jaunt to the market or as a wrap to punctuate any formal attire. Meanwhile, tiny bobbles are sprinkled throughout to create texture and movement, which reinvent bobbles into something whimsical and cute rather than bulky and excessive.

This pattern is an Intermediate level knit.
