Dragon Shawl Crochet Pattern

Our Dragon shawl crochet pattern from Cottontail & Whiskers. Crocheting your cosiest and stylish Dragon shawls is much easier with our detailed pattern.

Though intimidating to look at, photo tutorial instructions help any ability work this soft hearted cuddle. Bea has developed the traditional ‘crocodile stich’ with an additional anchor. Without spoilers, the end result holds the otherwise loose scales close to the shawl’s body, giving it a distinctive neat character.

We’ve never seen an anchored dragon scale stitch anywhere else so I’m coining it Bea’s Dragon Scale Stitch. Let us know if you’ve seen anything similar (they would work well as leaf stitches too).

Another feature of our Dragon Shawl design is in the shaped fitting. The main body is designed to envelop the shoulder, wrapping snugly around the back of the neck whilst retaining a distinctive asymmetric shape from the back. Cozy!

Finally, a well supported crochet band behind the head allows the tail to slide up, snugly adjusting to fit. Unfastened, You have a dragon stole or a wrap around dragon scale scarf.

Those who like to read descriptions are rewarded by knowing the answer to one of our burning questions…
“What yarn did you use?”

Have a look at our Nobbly cowl while you’re here. (We had to call it something)

Born in Scotland, written English, using American terminology.

Did you Know?

There is a place here in Scotland. It’s a mountain called Beinn Ghuilean or at least was. The modern name is Beinn a’ Bheithir though the Legend is no less haunting. I would tell you a tale were it not so sad. Google isn’t human enough to understand so will serve it on a cold plater.

All I know is that it must be true. I read it on the internet…  Beinn a’ Bheithir

    Wonderful pattern to follow. What looked difficult was so simple, with very well written instructions. I only made minor adjustments to the head, but that was entirely down to my choice of yarn ... and what dragon doesn't need a fringe.

    I loved making the shawl. It's easy to follow, for a mid-level beginner like me. The pics were very helpful. I think the face parts should be done together though, so the endings can be hidden (which was what I did).

    I also didn't quite like the one rung-one scale part of the tail... it swings cutely but I'm always afraid it'll fall off.. I think I'll modify it next time I make it. I love the dragon face though, and the whole structure... it's the only one of its kind right now in Etsy!

    I have not started as yet, have read the entire pattern, am making this for a friend who has survived cancer, had made a dragon hat a few years ago, so I know how to do the special stitch required, the pattern is easy to read and with lots of pictures easy to follow

    I’m new to crocheting (again) and the pattern was easy to follow even for me. I still can’t quite get the ears and horns tho. But I made 1 and am in the process of making another. The moment I saw this pattern I knew I had to have it and so glad I did, I love it so much! The second one I will admit I’m making it a little wider in back as it’s for a larger bodied friend.

    The patten is very well written and has easy to follow photos and, once you get into the swing of it, works up quickly. I absolutely adore the finished result and what woman doesn't need a dragon about her shoulders to keep her warm in these chilly months.

    I'm looking forward to purchasing more patterns from here, there are several I've got my eye on

    I adore this shawl! I’m new to crochet and I have a huge pile of knitting projects to get through first, so for the time being I’m just reading and rereading the pattern, internalizing the directions. I can’t wait to get at it sometime late this winter/early this spring!

    I love this whimsical scarf. As soon as I saw it I knew I had to make it. I got the PDF as soon as I put in my order and paid for it. The directions are very detailed with excellent photos that help in just the right spots. I am including a picture or two of my dragon scarf. I love it. One last thing, because it was written so well it only took me about 2 weeks, working on it between other projects. Thanks for an awesome pattern.
