Nathair-Sgiathach, or dragon, in Scottish Gaelic is a double-layered, stranded cowl! The outside features a diamond-shaped scale for the dragon’s tough hide and the inside is a series of soft curves representing the soft belly of the beast. With four layers of yarn sandwiched together and a seamless design, this cowl will keep you warm whatever the weather!
The cowl is worked in stranded/fair isle knitting. The colourwork pattern is both charted and written, with written instructions for the other rounds. As well as coloured charts there is a page with blank charts that you can print out and colour in with your choice of colours. The pattern also includes a photo tutorial for Kitchener Stitch in purl. The pattern has been tech edited and tested.Materials
