Pattern Club - Dragon Shawl


This wonderful shawl, Dragon's Hope, was designed by [pinkhairgirl, and as always, her design is full of love and emotion.

In her words:

 “Hope is the thing with feathers,
that perches in the soul,
and  sings the tune without the  words,
and never stops at all”   – Emily Dickenson

 This shawl was designed for a friend of mine with cancer. She loves dragons and fantasy so this seemed to be the right gift as she started treatment. I wrote the Emily Dickenson quote in the
 card when I gave it to her.   The colour and style was inspired by The Game of thrones Picture of Daenerys Targaryen, The Mother of Dragons and her newly hatched dragon. She found a strength inside her she never knew she had and fighting cancer needs this strength.
