Pattern Description:

I'm part Armenian, on the paternal side. I decided my brother might like a scarf that reflected that heritage. So, since Armenians are famous for carpets, I decided to look to specifically Armenian carpets for motifs to use. Imagine my delight when I discovered that not only does Armenian carpet style incorporate motifs from all over the middle and far east, but that there was a specific motif called Dragon. DRAGON!!! Dragons are the best! And look at those Armenian dragons, all muscular and mysterious, hinting of Viking ships or snakes and crushing power. But what to put with the dragons? I couldn't just shrink down a carpet design, even a small one, to hang around one's neck. Also there were too many good designs to choose just one. So I picked a bunch and used a unifying color scheme to blend them together somewhat.
