  • Coral version: width = 57” (145 cm), height = 27.5” (70 cm), approx.
  • Purple version: width = 65” (163 cm), height = 29.5” (75 cm), approx.

NOTE: the two versions of this design are made following the exact same instructions. The differences in size and measurements are only due to the use of different yarn weights and needle sizes (see materials section).


  • Coral (shawlette) version: Yarn weight: 4/ medium/ aran. Suggested yarn: Red Heart Super Saver Ombre, 100% acrylic, 10 oz (283 g), 482 yards (440 m), in the color “Sea Coral” 3967 (1 skein). Circular knitting needles, 32” (80 cm) long, size US 9 (5.5 mm).
  • Purple (shawl) version: Yarn weight: 5/ bulky. Suggested yarn: Alize Superlana Midi Ombre Batik, 75% acrylic, 25% wool, 10.58 oz (300 g), 557 yards (510 m), in the color 7270 (1 skein). Circular knitting needles, 32” (80 cm) long, size US 11 (8 mm).
  • Tapestry needle.
  • Ring stitch markers.

Ombre colored yarns are very inspiring, and the gradual shades can add to a simple shawl, poncho or any other wrap up cloth a more elegant appearance. Since I am a wildlife lover, the sea coral ombre yarn from Redheart is the most suitable for a project that invites all to love nature and protect the wildlife on land and under water.

Short rows technique based designs always intrigue me, but sometimes you come a cross one that may seem too complicated to make. They require patience and dedication (which I lack, haha…), especially when multiple skein colors are involved.

Similar to previous projects I made, like the Dragon Tail Shawl and Dragon Fire Cowl, this design incorporates the short rows technique. This time though, as you will see, I will take things up a notch. I included tutorial photos and written instructions on how to make the design, and I tried to present them as simple as possible, so make sure you follow the instructions closely.
