Lóngyǎn (Rav link)

A little change here, a little change there, and the stitch pattern from Kuaile starts to look like lóngyǎn, or “dragon eyes.” Knit from the bottom up, the shawl comes in two different versions, an all-over lace body or a stockinette body, and is customizable any size. The center lace pattern is reminiscent of scales, and continues up the spine of the shawl, giving interest even in the simple stockinette pattern.

This pattern is fully charted and written out.
