hey, i'm new to craftster and this is one of the first tutorials i've followed. i have all of the pieces made - i just need to connect them together. how exactly did you connect the legs? it seems like your legs are sturdy enough to be able to hold him up in a standing pose, but also allowing you to pose the legs in a sitting position. could you go into more detail about how you connected his legs please? thanks for the pattern!

Nedrian - I'll try and explain it and make it clear. I noticed some of the photos weren't showing up properly, so I've put them in the Craftster Photo Hosting, and added a couple that show the legs a bit better.

So, you've got a leg with a length of yarn hanging out of the top. Sew that yarn through the leg so that it comes out on the side that's going to be attached to the body. For the front legs that should be a couple of rows down, for the back legs it should be in the middle of the fat thigh bit. Then sew the yarn right through the body and back again, and then through just a bit of the leg (not through to the other side of the leg). Go back right through the body again and then sew through the leg a few more times to attach it securely. Remember, don't go all the way through the leg unless you want it to look more obviously toy-like. This method should make the legs secure but stil give some flexibility for posing.

Hope that helps!

Wow, thanks for the pattern. I love a good dragon pattern and you have some great detailing on yours. Excellent work and thanks again. Oh, and your son is a cutie too.

That's the cutest thing I've ever seen - I'm sorry that I can't crochet when seeing something that cute - but! I'm treating a friend of mine with all she needs to make your dragon  - so I have one Q. How much yarn will I need to get her?

Thank you so much

You don't need much - one ball of yarn should be fine. In the UK most yarn is sold in balls of 100g, and that is easily enough.

So I would have to send her 2X50grams skeins, 50 grams (100 meter) wouldn't be enough?

Thanks randomheartsx!

DaneMum, I'm pretty sure 50g would be enough, but I haven't made one recently. Maybe better safe than sorry with 100g.

You just saved me; my dragon-loving li'l' brother's b-day is coming up and most of the other patterns I found were, well, ugly. Now I'll make this one, and I know he'll love it!
