A long time ago I had seen on the web a Shawl in Dragon Tail Crochet .
And like everything I like, I keep it “one day I’ll do it”.
This winter it was this precious
Dragon Tail Shawl
Actually I thought it was very complicated, that’s why I postponed it. But it really is very easy to do.
Made entirely in crochet, you can find many patterns on the web to weave both crochet and two needles.
At the moment I have started with crochet.
- For this shawl in Dragon Tail Crochet , I used, 200 gr. (4 balls) wool Drops Delight in color nº 5 .
- This is a fine wool, in the instructions it says that it is knitted in crochet nº 3.5.
- Since I did not want it to be tight, I knitted it with a # 5 needle.
- But this is to the taste of the weaver, you have to make a sample before starting the weaving.
Step by Step
In most of the tutorials I’ve seen, it indicated a certain number of sections (peaks). I wove sections until finishing with the 200 gr of wool I had. The first section I did was 8 laps, and the rest of 10 laps. Following the scheme you can weave the sections you want, and the size of laps that you like the most. It will always be good.
1st Round: We start with 4 chains, we jump the first three chains and in the fourth we knit 4 ribs.
2nd Round: We climb with 3 chains and we knit a crochet in the first point of the previous round, a chain, two increases in the following points and we finish with a vareta.
3rd Round: We climbed 3 chains and we wove an increase of two varetas together, a vareta, another increase, a vareta, chain and ended with 2 varetas.
