With its engaging hybrid construction and unusual border, Dragonfruit is an adventure of a shawl. Dragonfruit’s three textured panels and intricate edging pack a visual punch, whether made in solid, gradient, variegated, or slow-color-change yarn.

The Dragonfruit Shawl was the January 2017 Join-Along pattern in the Crochet Shoulder Wrappers Group! Read the thread and share projects here.

Difficulty Level: Intermediate

Skills Used:

  • basic stitches (ch, sc, sl st, hdc,
    dc, trc)
