I have decided to learn to knit. I love outdoor things like gardening and hiking, so this was an idea that I had entertained, but never really pursued. It is a bit frustrating (as I was warned it would be), but like any thing, else, it takes practice and patience.
Inspired by sea creatures real and imagined, the Sea Dragon Shawl is knit from side to side, with short rows forming a shallow crescent shape. Its comfortable proportions are perfect for wrapping around the neck scarf-style or wearing around the shoulders. Choose between a small or large Sea Dragon Shawl and showcase your favourite yarn: go crazy with your leftover yarn stash and knit each segment in a different colour, use a gradient or variegated yarn, or go with your favourite solid colour combination.
Suitable for adventurous beginners, techniques include: simple short rows, picking up stitches, simple increases and decreases.
You can buy the pattern on Ravelry.
It states that the pattern is suitable for adventurous beginners. I am not there yet, but some day. 🙂
