Lindwurm Shawl

from Sorlenna
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Lindwurm Shawl
Lindwurm Shawl One Piece Wing in green
Lindwurm Shawl Peacock Lindwurm
Lindwurm Shawl Fiery One Piece Wing
Lindwurm Shawl Red and black Lindwurm

Pattern Description:

This shawl started with an inspiration from an old pattern--and I just kept going until I had three versions! When I stood back and looked at the finished product, Lindwurm, the German word for dragon, seemed the only choice for its name. Wrap yourself in its fiery warmth this winter!

Teal and red shawls are made with two strands of yarn held together (fingering + lace), though you can use just one strand as you prefer, too. Both are composed of individual scales that are then assembled, but if you don't like sewing or crocheting motifs together, the one piece is also an option. The Fiery One Piece Wing is done with just one skein of Patons Lace, so this doesn't have to be a major undertaking or a big investment. The Green One Piece Wing is done with Knit Picks Andean Treasure (Grove Heather) and also worked up fast. As you can see, the choices are virtually unlimited and this pattern can be individualized to suit your unique personality.


One scale with one strand fingering + one strand lace and size 10 needles = 13" x 9", blocked; other yarns and needle sizes are given in pattern.


  • 29" or longer circular needle for one piece shawl
  • OR needles of your choice for scaled shawl
