Dragons Tail Shawl

4ply 50% silk, 50% merino sock

Sizes: One size Yarn & Quantities2 ply hand spun - 120-150g (wpi 16-18) 2 ply - 150g (use 1 strand at a time) (Misti Alpaca hand painted lace 2ply) 4 ply - 100-150g (Misti Alpaca hand painted 4ply sock) Needles: 80cm or longer circular: 4mm (4ply and hand spun), or 4.5mm (2ply worked with 2 strands) Gauge: Not too important Tools: wool needle

Pattern CommentsThis pattern uses short row shaping and assumes that you understand this technique. You can pick up the wraps as you go or not it is up to you. The pattern is very forgiving and you can make changes to it to suit the yarn you choose or other considerations. In the garter stitch version if you make a mistake when counting your stitches between the wrap and turns, it will not matter too much. You can start at any section and repeat it as many times as you like, just give consideration to how that will influence the final outcome. You can skip sections for example sections 15 and 16 as they will be almost the same as section 17. You may ask why did I put them in I guess I am being a math/knit nerd!! You can create the slipped stitch edge or just knit the first stitch on the toothed edge. The version in the image above began with two repeats of section 3, then two repeats of section 4 ending with one repeat of the rest of section 5 to 19. The hand spun yarn version (teal/cerise) comprised of two repeats of each section starting at section 1. The Misti Alpaca 2ply version worked 2 strands together is two repeats of each section beginning with section 1.1

Dragons Tail ShawlIn the stocking stitch version I gave it an eyelet edge, but you could make it garter stitch or moss stitch (seed stitch). I also made a version in 8ply/DK and used 6mm needles and cast on 50 sts. Have fun and enjoy the finished shawl.

Instructions1) Read the comments above 2) On the 1st row of each new section you can pick up the wraps if you wish 3) On the last two rows of each section the remaining stitches will either be a few more or a few less than the number between each wrap and turn. You can choose to work two further rows with less stitches or finish the section as is.
