Developed by Megan Lapp aka Crafty Intentions, this pattern is for a Dragon! It is recommended for intermediate skill level or above. Gauge is not crucial to the pattern of the body, head, and limbs, as long as the stitches are tight enough to hold the stuffing. However, gauge is important to the size of the wings in relation to the wire armature. It is recommended to try this pattern in the suggested sizes before using a lighter or heavier weight yarn that would require the adjustment of the length of the wire wing supports. A G size crochet hook is recommended with worsted weight yarn and you will need a darning needle to weave in the yarn ends and sew shut any holes. A Dragon from this pattern is 12 inches tall from head to toes, with 18 inches nose-to-tail, and 24 Inches from the tip of one wing to the other. This pattern is written in U.S. terminology.

This dragon is free standing and poseable. It uses one package of 18g paper wrapped floral craft wire (Stiff/strong wire, not soft wire) to create a simple spine for the dragon’s body which allows for the head to be moveable, and it lines the edge of the wings which allows them to be poseable as well. The adornments are all optional and as such you can create your own unique dragon every time.

Additional pattern options will be available soon including extra large wings, different ornamentation, extra long tail, and alternative leg positions and shapes.
