A while back, I showed you a shawlette made with wild colors. Back then, I promised to write it into a pattern. Well, I’m happy to announce, that today is the day I finally get to publish it. The beautiful vortex was renamed, and I am proud to introduce The Faerie Dragon Shawlette.
As I mentioned when I first shared the shawlette, I got two gorgeous skeins of merino-silk for my Birthday. They were very unusual colors for me, and the person who gave them to me was actually a bit antsy about whether or not I’d like them. Well, I didn’t. I loved them! I loved the yarns so much I really just wanted to sit down in the middle of the floor and start knitting right there and then.
I resisted the urge, but not for long. You see, the yarns screamed that they wanted to become a vortex scarf, and be together forever. My only doubt at this was whether there’d be enough for a scarf. I quickly decided that if the scarf would be too small to wear, I’d just hang it somewhere and look at it.
Turns out there was plenty for a scarf. After a bath, the scarf grew into a long shawlette.
The yarns were an absolute joy to work with. The colors were vibrant and full of life, and the luxurious merino-silk was a sheer indulgence. I didn’t check to see how long it took to knit the shawlette, but it couldn’t have been more than two weeks. I worked The Faerie Dragon in garter stitch and eyelet lace, so it was a zero-concentration-required -kind of project. I actually picked simple stitches for this shawlette so that I’d get to admire the colors more closely when knitting.
The Faerie Dragon Shawlette is now available as a knitting pattern. It’s our featured product for this week and next so you’ll be seeing more of it in later posts! Since this is a winter accessory, I’m planning to create some warmer, layered outfits to go with it. And as you know, featured products are on sale, but only for VIPs. If you haven’t already, order our newsletter to gain access to these special offers.
I hope you’ll enjoy The Faerie Dragon as much as I enjoyed knitting it!
Until next time.
