My first knitted dragon tail or dragon scarf

In the last days and weeks was in the Google+ communities around knitting and needlework a cloth of perennial: the Dragon tail or dragon scarf , Many knitted it and some crocheted your specimens. All beautiful scarves with great color gradient. You will guess, I was infected by the dragon’s tail fever.

That’s him, my dragon scarf , not quite perfect, but more on that right now:

I have used Schachenmayr Tahiti in color 07652 from my wool supply. With circular needles No. 5 I knitted two skeins with double thread. The wool is wonderfully soft and easy to knit, but maybe not quite the right choice for this project.

The spikes have not worked out quite well, no matter what I’ve tried, put on tight, let loose on decoupling. Mmmhh …

I opted for the second variant, but would have omit the last spikes and one spike should just chain off all the remaining stitches beforehand. Well, next time I’ll do it better.

Do you want to see other examples, Petra Hürkamp has chosen the first variant of the decapping. I also think it’s very nice, see for yourself:

The Tahiti wool is quite tender and soft, so that the Pips did not come out so well. I decided that cloth curious; excited , With other wool this is probably not necessary.

My dragon tail reached one before cocking width of 18cm, then 20cm and one length 160cm before, then 165cm.

So, how about you, have you knitted or crocheted a dragon’s tail?

Perhaps you have a tip regarding the Zacken for me?

I’m looking forward for comments!

Greetings and a nice week wishes
