Please note: There is an error at the beginning of Round 4 of the BEGIN DRAGON SCALE STITCH PATTERN. The book says “Sl st in space between sc and……” but it Should say “Sl st in space between BPhdc and…..” The chart shows the correct stitches however.

Also- Round 32 of the head should read:
*Sc in each of next 2 sts, sc2tog, rep from * around -18 sts.

What better to protect your neck than a fire-breathing dragon? Bold and fierce (yet somehow squishy and soft) this scarf will warm the coldest of necks … and the iciest of hearts. A large button under his chin keeps him from flying away.
