Plant dyed pebble dragons

Dragons galore!

I’m growing really fond of these sweet, little dragons. They’re quick enough, and the pebble weave means that they use far less yarn compared to other patterns.

I must also mention Sabine Ringenberg, the wonderful lady who plant dyed these colours. The yarn is 4 ply, but incredibly thin and strong, not to mention the consistency of the dye. All in all, some really awesome wool!

This 2 meter band was done for a friend, has 20 cards and took about 12 hours. The colours are undyed (white), walnut (brown) and indigo (blue). The pattern is inspired from an archaeological find in Dublin around 10th century, but the original was brocaded.

My arrangements are not as good as Liv’s, but practice makes perfect, no?
