I Am Dragon III is the third design in I Am Dragon trilogy. The inspirations for the this one and the previous two designs came from J.R.R.Tolkien books, The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings films and, of course, Game of Thrones. I’ve been alway fascinated with dragon legends and imagery. So, if you have similar interests - this is the project for you!

About the backdrop for this design. This is an engraving “The story of Daniel, Bel and the Dragon” by Maarten van Heemskerck, 1565. It perfectly reflects the mood of this KAL and I am simply obsessed with it!

It is a triangular shape shawl. The knitting starts at the bottom. Keep in mind that blocking plays an important role, so your piece will get into it’s final shape after the blocking is complete.

I am very fortunate to collaborate with Hedgehog Fibers for this project and if you never had a chance to work with their yarn - you’ll love it! I chose five 3-skein fade combinations - Amethyst Dragon (the cover), Emerald Dragon, Opal Dragon, Citrine Dragon and Ruby Dragon. All named after precious gems. For each dragon you will need 3 full skeins, each between 400m/437 yards. Hedgehog Fibers has an amazing color palette, so Get in Touch with Your Inner Dragon and make your choice!
Amethyst Dragon = Daydream + Iris + Construct

Emerald Dragon = Fly +Parklife + Goblin

Opal Dragon = Cereal + Juniper + Method

Citrine Dragon = Bee’s Knees + Wildcard + Oracle

Ruby Dragon = Rosehip + Pinky Swear + Gossip

after blocking (unstretched) Length: 53”/135cm
Width: 13”/33cm

I used US2.5 (3.00mm) & US1 (2.25mm) ChiaoGoo 40”(102cm) circular needles. Stitches should be firm, not loose. Adjust needle size if needed.

Approx. 35g of Miyuki Glass beads size 6/0, row counter to keep you on track, 26 stitch markers, a tapestry needle and two large wooden beads for PomTassels

The skill level is Intermediate. You should be comfortable with stitch increases and decreases and yarn overs.
