Dragon Colorwork Chart

This little chart is intended as a supplement to the brilliant Hogwarts Double Knitted Bookscarves by the lovely and brilliant Ann Kingstone.  Her charts are available on Ravelry.com, a free site for fiber crafters.  I used this chart to make the double-knitted bookscarf you see here.  It can also be a repeated stranded motif on […]

The stockinette inner surface keeps your ears toasty and the beautiful cables of the outer surface, knit against a reverse stockinette background, are copied from Ireland’s great treasure: […]
