I fell in love with what I call Dragon stitch when I was designing my ‘Winter is coming’ shawl. So many people commented when they made the shawl how they enjoyed knitting that part. When it came time to design the South African inspired
patterns, Dragon stitch was just calling to be used. It reminded me of a beautiful mountain range in South Africa called the Drakensberg or Dragon Mountains. I have been hiking many times in these mountains, a really breath taking part of the world.
Beanie style hat knitted from the bottom up. This hat has Dragon stitch on the brim and a stocking stitch body while strands of colour from the brim are carried up the sides. Simple embroidered flower can be added on afterwards.
Please note purchase is for the PDF pattern to knit the Drakensberg Hat and not for the finished item!!
This pattern will make a mug warmer in Dragon stitch for an average 9cm/3.5” mug (measured across the diameter). Due to the stretchy nature of this stitch it can fit a bigger mug too, you might just need to knit a few more rows.
