We just had to offer kits for this beautiful design again!

*****

I am really in love with the designs of Svetlana Gordon.  So when I had a chance to put together some kits for her Jewel Dragon, I was thrilled. 

The design is patchwork knitting and even though the finished piece looks complex, the process is not a difficult one. 

***

Important note:  you must get the pattern  here on Svetlana's Ravelry page. We do not carry it ourselves.

***

The original piece used about 200 grams (roughly 800 yards) of a variegated fingering weight yarn plus about 100 grams of a solid (about 400 yards), this scarf can be made shorter or even into a cowl should you so choose. 

 Svetlana used Malabrigo Mechita for her original one and we are now able to offer this exact yarn though our colorways are different.  You can see what we have for these kits in the top photo on this page (the insets) and right below that.  Svetlana's pieces are shown here so you can see the design. 

Here is what we have put together for each of these kits:  two skeins a variegated colorway + one of an almost-solid for the outlining.

****

Mechita is a 100% merino superwash with about 420 yards/ 100g skein.

Kit A:

Lotus is a wondrous variegated colorway that features teals mingling with roses and wines. Absolutely beautiful, a flower garden of colors.  

It is being paired with Teal Feather, a striking almost-solid, with sublty shifting tones of teal.  Rich and deep.  (Sorry, sold out)

****

Kit B:

Illusion is the variegated colorway in this set, a sophisticated melody of greys with some eggplant and sage, some golden tones and some lilac.  It is a bit hard to describe -- quite a beautiful and rich mix of sophisticated hues that look great together. 

The almost-solid to go with this is Polar Morn, a fantastic blend of greys and steel blues.  Truly lovely.   

****

Kit C: 

Lluvias is a most intriguing variegated colorway that mixes warmth with coolness.  Variations of gold and rust combine with cobalt and greys and blues.  Reminds me of a storm at sunset. 

With it we are pairing the lovely neutral Polar Morn as described for Kit B.   

(Sorry, sold out)
