A very cute project with interesting stitches and techniques. Approximately intermediate level, but don’t feel intimidated if you like to learn new things. The dragon looks good in a wide range of yarns, so feel free to use what you like, or look through the projects for inspiration. (Also, if you leave off the wings, ears, and spikes, you can make a T-Rex!)

The knight and princess take very little yarn, so are good to use up left-overs. They can be as simple or as creative as you like.

Skills required include stockinette and garter stitch, left and right decreases, m1 increase, bobbles, and mattress stitch. The pieces are all knit flat, then seamed, stuffed, and assembled.

Dragon: 150-175 g chunky or bulky weight yarn (165-190 yd), 5 or 5.5 mm needles, 15 mm safety eyes, stuffing, yarn to embroider face, tapestry needle.
Knight and Princess: 15 g of worsted weight yarn in grey, 15 g of worsted weight yarn in blue, 10 g of worsted weight yarn in tan/brown, pair of 4 mm needles, stuffing, 2 pairs of 6 mm safety eyes, tapestry needle, yarn/ribbon/buttons for embellishments.
