Hatchling Dragon shawl
Hatchling is the shawl that started my mini-obsession with dragon shawls. It began as an innocent attempt to make the most of a single skein of luxurious yarn. From its conception, many more dragons have emerged. This is a delightful, quick knit with stunning results.
Pattern is fully charted.
48” from tip to tip.
62” along the top curve.
20” long down the spine.
Yarn: Any favourite single skein of fingering weight yarn with a solid or semi-solid colour (or gradient) will look gorgeous. Works well with a sport weight also. 350m (380 yds)
Needles: 4.5mm (US 7)
Blank squares are knit on the RS and purled on the WS.
On Chart C, row 1 sets up the edging, which does not have a center panel. While working this row you can remove the markers as the decreases will cross the markers.
To check your transition to chart C, the K-point (between two YOs) will line up with the previous YO between scales.
Above sample worked in a bamboo yarn and features purposeful scars from the Battle-Weary Dragon design .
