Knitting Matters 804 Kiyo
Knitting Matters patterns are no longer available for sale.
The “dragon skin” stitch pattern found in one of Barbara Walker’s stitch dictionaries works up beautifully in SWTC’s Phoenix, a next-to-the skin-soft tape yarn. It also inspired the name of this design -- Kiyo was a waitress in a Japanese legend who turned herself into a dragon to take revenge on a suitor who spurned her advances. (Yikes!) The ¾-length lace sleeves are the only remaining trace of her feminine side. You know, the non-dragon part.
