A whimsical shawl pattern that has it all: season-spanning, easy knitting, customizable. And it’s stash-busting, to boot!
Whimsical flappy little dragon scales are started separately then attached as you knit the body of this boomerang-shaped shawl.
The pattern is appropriate for adventurous beginners and intermediate knitters. You really get a lot of pop from simple garter stitch on this design.
What’s a Wyvern?
A wyvern is a two-legged dragon. You’ve probably seen them as mascots and in fantasy stories. Someone mentioned that the piece I was knitting looked like a dragon tail with scales, and thus the name was born!
Pick a single skein of fingering yarn for the main color and your favorite mini skein set for the tabs. Or use up those leftover bits from other projects for the pops of color.
You’ll need about 355 yards [325 meters] of the main color (MC) and 45 yards [41 meters] each of five contrasting colors (A-E). The sample used Anzula Squishy (80% superwash merino wool, 10% cashmere, 10% nylon), 4 oz [114 g], 385 yd [352 m]), 1 skein in color Jade (MC) and Anzula Squishy Skeinettes (same fiber content, 5 skeins of .7 oz [20 g], 67 yd [61 m] each), 1 pack in colorway Rebel Without a Stitch (A-E)
The yarn really is squishy and lovely to work with. And don’t you just love the name of that color pack?
The pdf pattern has been professionally tech edited, and the pattern has been test knit to ensure accuracy.
This is a fun project that lends itself to customization. You’ll quickly get the hang of attaching the tabs, and you might decide to add even more. Try a color changing yarn for the background or the contrasting tabs, and see what happens.
