Drachenfels Shawl Kit

Here be dragons, or so says the legend – though when you climb Drachenfels today you’ll find only the ruins of an ancient stronghold.  Stave off the chill wind with this cozy shawl, which pays homage to the dragon of lore with a slipped garter colorwork pattern that hints of scales.

It’s worked in garter stitch from tip to edge, then neatly finished with I-cord bind-off.  Asymmetrical increases create an elongated triangle shape, and any of our three yarn choices will keep you toasty warm.

Made with either Juniper Moon Farm Herriot (100% Camelid - Alpaca), Juniper Moon Farm Moonshine (40% Wool, 40% Camelid - Alpaca, 20% Silk) Ella Rae Cozy Alpaca (Alpaca blend) or Simplicity by Hikoo (Merino wool blend).
