Loop is proud to stock the beautiful printed patterns of Melanie Berg. Drachenfels is the name of a hill located near my hometown. Several legends surround this place, most famously that Siegfried – the hero of the Nibelungenlied – killed the dragon Fafnir, who lived in a cave in the hill, then bathed in its blood to become invulnerable. Hence, the hill is named the "Dragon's Rock", Drachenfels. Stave off the chill wind with this cosy shawl, which pays homage to the dragon of lore with a slipped garter colorwork pattern that hints of scales. It’s worked in garter stitch from tip to edge, then neatly finished with I-cord bind-off. Asymmetrical increases create an elongated triangle shape, and Rosy Green Wool’s Cheeky Merino Joy will keep you toasty warm.
