the making of a dragon

on 04March2016, i decided to try a larger amigurumi. i had not tried anything other than stuffed bears. as i searched thru patterns of larger stuffed toys very different from bears, i came across a dragon crochet pattern designed by Vanja Grundmann.
i scanned the pictues and pattern. did not look too difficult as the pattern is well written. u definitely need to know how to read this pattern as it is written to a more advanced pattern reader. i chose to do create a dragon.

pattern: BB_DRAGON
designed by: Vanja Grundmann
color of yarn used: I LOVE THIS YARN neon orange/RED HEART SUPER SAVER bright yellow
hook size: G4.5mm

below r the pieces of the dragon. not pictured: yellow body patch.

the body and head r made separately. first the head and then the body is made from an opening for stuffing. once the body is complete, the ridgeback is crocheted directly down the back.

the rest of the pieces r then attached.

the finished dragon is now ready for a child to enjoy.

i made a few mistakes on this, my first, so i will not sell it. i have a grandson, Gabriel, who should enjoy it.

will definitely make another one. this time, using bright yellow as main color with the neon orange as accent color. hopefully i learn from mistakes made on first.
