Dragon Rider

Another fabulous collaboration with Forbidden Fiber Co., this yoke style sweater starts out with 2 color Fisherman’s rib incorporating mini skeins and a main color. Gradual increases create the rounded yoked shoulder, transitioning into a solid main body with pockets and a fun, colorful bottom band and cuffs. The construction is anything but boring and will keep you engaged from beginning to end. Pick your favorite 6 color mini skein set to coordinate with a main color and cast on.

Yarn: One set of mini skeins - approx 87 yards each of 6 colors and approx 700 - 1000 yards of fingering weight yarn of main color, Shown in Forbidden Fiber Co. Fortitude (100%SW Merino) - Dragon Eggs mini set and Lady Penny.

For sizes XS, S and M - 1 mini skein set plus 2 full skeins For sizes L, XL and XXL - 1 mini skein set plus 3 full skeins.

Sizes: XS, (S, M , L, XL, XXL). Chest circumference 34 (36, 40, 46, 49, 54) inches.

Born in the Indian sub-continent and educated in Asia, Europe and the United States, I currently live in California. My work is informed by all these cultures. Passionate about bringing together elements of classic design from a variety of sources to create something new and original, I bring a modern sensibility and love of construction to the art of knitting.  In the past three years, I have published a full wardrobe of garments from fingerless mittens, cowls, hats, scarves, shawls, sweaters, and more. I conduct knitting workshops seasonally,  regularly contribute promotional designs for some of California’s favorite local yarn shops, and have collaborated with several independent dyers across the country.
