Fine or Bold - This pattern has been designed for 2 different weights of yarn, fingering or bulky!

I LOVE dragons and have studied/tested Barbara Walker’s Strawberry pattern until I came up with a version of my own to mimic my favourite winged reptile.

3D dragon scales cover both raglan sleeves which meet in the centre back of this shrug.

Sleeves are knit in the round until the armhole, then worked back and forth to the centre back seam and grafted together to complete. A ribbed edging encircles the neck, sleeve fronts and bottom back to create a shawl collar.

Charts and knitting instructions.
