Level of difficulty: easy
At the Rhine river there lived dragons - so the legend says. The shawl by Melanie Berg reminds us with its earthy-fiery colours of the dragon of lore and a slipped garter colourwork pattern resembles scales. It is worked in garter stitch from tip to edge, then neatly finished with an I-cord bind-off. Asymmetrical increases create an elongated triangle shape and the soft Cheeky Merino Joy will caress your neck.
You need 3 skeins of Cheeky Merino Joy (1 skein per colour). The shawls in the images are knitted with the colours Cornish Slate, Isar Pebble and Edelweiss resp. Coffee Bean (has been discontinued meanwhile), Wild Mallow and Ruby.
Needles: US 6 (4 mm) circular needle approx. 40" (100 cm) long and US 8 (5 mm) double pointed or circular needles for the I-cord-bind-off. Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.
