Yesterday I came across this video, on YouTube, of someone making Steve’s Flying Dragon Illusion on a shawl. It is in French so I am not sure what it all says but it is very detailed and I can tell that she explains a lot about the pattern and the yarns she used.
The pattern has instructions for using the dragon on a banner, shawl or square wall-hanging. Our original version was a banner which was made using approximately 270 metres (300 yards) of DK yarn in each colour. It is about 60 cm (24”) wide and 71 cm (28”) high.
When you look from directly in front you only see stripes. The dragon only appears when you move to the side. On the shawl the dragon appears and disappears as you move around.
