Inspired by sea creatures real and imagined, Ambah O'Brien's
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
favorite yarn: go crazy with your leftover yarn stash and knit each segment in a
different color, use a gradient or variegated yarn, or go with your favorite
solid color combination.
Suitable for adventurous beginners, techniques include: simple
short rows, picking up stitches, simple increases and decreases.
