This is a friendly dragon, offering you flowers and a smile. He and his friends have lived in my sketchbooks for years occasionally coming out to play in more finished form. This is an almost-square throw worked in intarsia. It includes two textured patterns, a twist (mock cable) stitch, and a "stranded stitch". Some of the color areas are quite small & could be done in duplicate stitch. If you stay with intarsia, you will be managing approximately 40 threads across the middle of the blanket. Due to the size of the design, the pattern has 8 pages of charts. Individual stitch patterns have both charted and written directions but there are no "row-by-row" directions for the full design. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY The design is worked using the intarsia technique. Because of the size and complexity of the design, there are 8 pages of charts but no line-by-line directions.

I started knitting as a child. Over the years I used a lot of patterns written by others. At some point I decided to experiment and create things from my own designs. A few years ago I started writing up my patterns for others to use. I hope you enjoy my efforts.
