Pattern Description:

Inspired by Daenerys Targaryen, Mother of Dragons from Game of Thrones, this lace shawl is deceptively easy to knit.

The Mother of Dragons shawl was created to look like the wing of a dragon. The lace pattern mimics the intricate scales found on dragons and leads down to a fine point lace edging, like the points on dragon wings.

The Mother of Dragon Shawl is worked in 3 sections beginning with a garter stitch tab at the center neck. The body of the shawl is worked over a series of increase rows in sections 1 and 2 with garter stitch edgings to prevent the edging from rolling. The the lace edging border is worked across the bottom edge of the shawl incorporating all of the boarder stitches so there is minimal binding off at the end.

This pattern, as well as all of my patterns, has been test knitted and checked for clarity.


24 sts x 24 rows over 4", blocked in chart 1 lace pattern. Gauge is not critical to this project, but will affect the size and amount of yarn used for the finished shawlette.


  • Tapestry needle for weaving in ends, and pins for blocking. Blocking boards and wires are optional, but very helpful.

Suggested yarn:

360 yards of Fingering weight

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

Miss Babs 2-Ply Yummy


Biker Chick
