Enter the Dragon


This feisty three-color shawl was inspired by the pitaya or dragon fruit. I was fascinated by the contrast of the black-and-white texture of the fruit itself against the vibrant pink rind. How can something like this occur naturally?

Enter the Dragon is a shallow triangle-shaped shawl made with garter stitch and easy mosaic slip stitches. The intriguing border is a ribbed lace pattern filled with tiny leaves, resembling the spiked scales of the fruit.

The shawl comes in two sizes, Small and Large, and can also be knit with two instead of three colors. Release your inner dragon!
