This eBook is FREE with the purchase of a skein of our Creature Feature yarn, which comes with a FREE lobster claw to match. Click here to see “Creatures” and choose your very own. After purchasing your yarn, PM me if you would like the 490 yard base instead for a larger shawl. Or we can do the same technique on our super sized skein with 750 yards in it.

Creature claws curl over the bottom edge of this shawl. They end in sharp talons of beads. When blocked gently, your creatures undulating muscles will show on these wings. The ridges show how much your Creature goes to the gym, then he relaxes after snoozing over his gem horde. Worked flat from tip to tip this little shawl packs a powerful punch. Dragons, Phoenix and Pegasus unite in the skies, flapping around over head; can you see them?
