The Daughter of Dragons scarf is based on a wingspan or dragon tail shape. The ‘fins’ alternate between a closed, tight stitch (half double crochet/half treble crochet) and a more open stitch (front post double crochet/front post treble crochet with chain and skipped stitches) which gives it a lovely drape. This pattern was inspired by a friend of mine’s daughter. She combines the best qualities of the dragon – strong, fierce, super smart – with the best qualities of humanity – compassionate, caring, empathetic. Her mother and I also happen to be fans of Game of Thrones, so there’s that too.

The pattern, with tutorial videos, is available for free on my website (longdogwool.com) in US terms. The pdf pattern, which is available in both US and UK terms, was free for over a year but numerous copyright violations have meant that I am now charging a small fee for the pdf of the pattern.

I’m very proud to say that this scarf (the orange/brown version in the Jawoll Magic wool sock yarn) has won first prize at the 2019 Ballarat Show in the Victorian Agricultural Society Crochet category - the Big One! It should have gone on to compete in The Midlands Group Competition but the pandemic meant that was cancelled in 2020. However, I’m happy to say the Group Competition was finally held recently (April 2021) and this scarf took 2nd place.

Happy hooking everyone!
