This project base class is designed to take a deep dive into the intricate technique of three-dimensional knitting with bead application for three of my designs in the I Am Dragon series. In this class, we will work on a swatch and will learn how to make 3D dragon scales into an elegant and truly unique design. I will guide you through the process and will share all my tips and tricks on how to create your own Dragon knitwear. You’ll learn how to create 3D dragon scales, bead application for this design, a unique blocking technique applicable to this design, the anatomy of the tassels for this design, and get inspired by the presentation of the multiple samples in an array of fibers and colors.
