Storm Dragon shawl
Storm Dragon is the second in a series of dragon inspired shawls and scarves.
This shawl starts with a crescent in garter stitch and ends with a lace edge that features a dragon-scale pattern with beads. The lace is a 16 stitch repeat over 10 rows. There are no increases in the lace pattern, and the beading occurs on the unpatterned wrong-side rows, making this suitable for intermediate lace knitters.
Instructions are for two sizes, using either two contrasting colours or a single colour.
Special thanks to Gannet Designs who designed the stitch pattern for the dragon-scale lace.
Pattern comes fully written and with a chart for the beaded lace section.
