Nathair-Sgiathach, or dragon, in Scottish Gaelic is a double-layered, stranded cowl! The outside features a diamond-shaped scale for the dragon’s tough hide and the inside is a series of soft curves representing the soft belly of the beast. With four layers of yarn sandwiched together and a seamless design, this cowl will keep you warm whatever the weather!
The cowl is worked in stranded/fair isle knitting. The colourwork pattern is both charted and written, with written instructions for the other rounds. As well as coloured charts there is a page with blank charts that you can print out and colour in with your choice of colours. The pattern also includes a photo tutorial for Kitchener Stitch in purl. The pattern has been tech edited and tested.
35 stitches and 36 rows in 10 cm (4”) in stranded stocking stitch in the round.
