Dragons have ignited the imagination for centuries. They have been associated with every element, with every colour, with fear and with kindness, with protection and with that which we need protection from. May your imagination guide you as you create your dragon.

This crescent shaped, beaded shawl features a unique beaded design for the scales and wing-tips. The textured shoulders of the Battle-Weary Dragon are scarred and the wing-tips are tattered. With the Hobbit films currently in theatres, I can’t help but associate this with Smaug when I wear it. He’s seen a few battles.

Requires at least 420 6/0 beads and a beading hook or floss method.

Blocked dimensions:
Wingspan of 58”
Length of 26”

Instructions provided for making larger or smaller.

Beaded scales are each 1 ¼” wide, 2 ¼” long
Spine scales between crossed stitches are 2” wide and 1 ¼” long per repeat.

Both written and charted instructions are provided.

Video demonstrating the 3>2 (aka 2 from 3) decrease is available on my Youtube page.
