Dragon Wings Shawl - The Exclusive Yarn is 20% Off and the Pattern is Free!

You have probably heard of the HBO series "Game of Thrones."  It's an epic drama where it's not clear who's bad and who's good . . .  especially the dragons!  It's Vera's favorite show, so Vera and I worked up a custom Mountain Colors Yarn color, and a terrific shawl inspired by the majestic dragon named Drogon.

Dragon Wings Shawl Pattern
The circular shawl features flames and scales, with cables for the spines of the dragon wings.  It's knit with Mountain Color's Bearfoot yarn, a soft blend of superwash wool, mohair and a little nylon. The shawl's size is approximately 21” to 23” in diameter, and will take two skeins of the Bearfoot yarn.

Bonus: The Dragon Wings Shawl pattern is FREE with the purchase of the Bearfoot Fire Dragon yarn!

This exclusive yarn color is called “Fire Dragon,” and is available only at FiberWild!  The bold red, black and yellow are the color of Drogon's wings, and the color is also reminiscent of the flames of the funeral pyre where Daenery's three dragons were hatched.

The Fire Dragon color is also available in Crazyfoot and Weavers Wool 1/4s. We DO NOT recommend knitting the shawl with Crazyfoot. We have not knit the shawl in Weavers Wool 1/4s, but if you would like to give it a try, please call the store for some insights!
