This beautiful shawl, designed by Melanie Berg, will help you stave off the chill wind. Drachenfels pays homage to the dragon of lore with a slipped garter colorwork pattern that hints of scales.

The shawl is worked in garter stitch from tip to edge, then neatly finished with I-cord bind-off.

Included in the Kits:

  • 3 skeins of Whimsical Colors Yak Single - a beautiful single ply yarn made of Superwash Merino, Silk and yak (65/20/15)

- OR -

  • 3 skeins of Whimsical Colors Silky Merino Light - a luscious combination of Superwash Merino and Silk (50/50)

- AND -

  • The pattern for Drachenfels via Ravelry

- AND - 

  • A Virtual KAL (Knit-along)! 

KAL Details

Saturdays, October 3 - November 14 from 2-3 PM PST

A Zoom link will be emailed to you the week before the first KAL session.

Every participant who finishes their shawl by November 30, will be entered into a drawing for a Surprise Gift Basket - more details to come in the KAL!

Not included

Circular needle size US 6 (4mm) for the shawl - 40”
Either a 24" (or smaller) circular needle OR double-pointed needles (6" or 8") in size US 8 (5mm) for the I-chord bind off.  My preference is for double pointed needles.  You only need 2 dpns for the bind off, so if you have an incomplete set, that's just fine!

Kits of Yak Single are $108


Kits of Silky Merino Light are $96
