I've just finished writing up the pattern for my Dragonet, and I'd like to find a couple of people to test it. I think it's about intermediate level difficulty (I reckon that's if you've made a few amigurumi already), and I think it might take several hours to make - there are quite a few parts to sew together and the wings in particular are fairly complicated.

So if you have a bit of spare time and would be able to start making it in the next couple of days, please PM me. I'll need you to help spot any mistakes and let me know how easy the pattern is to follow. You will need 100g of any colour yarn, double knit weight, and a pair of eyes, either 12mm safety eyes or 12mm diameter beads.

Thanks in advance!

I sew, paint unfinished wood, sketch, make jewelry, crochet a bit, loom knit, and sew. Pretty much if I can get my hands on it to learn, then I will know it. Maybe not perfectly, but enough for a hobby.

I'd be up for giving your pattern a test drive, my son loves dragons. You can see some of my Amigurumis on my flickr page http://www.flickr.com/photos/14769043@N07/sets/72157604057522762/or my Ravelry page http://www.ravelry.com/projects/yelutci.
I haven't done anything like your beautiful dragons, but I have done pattern testing (the monkey and elephant were tests).

I've heard it both ways.

I'm looking to swap some knit &/or crocheted crafts for handmade CP/HP soap.

You probably have plenty of testers already, but I sent you a PM anyway!

I need to go re-read all the Pern books soon.

This is above my skill set, but I just wanted to say (s)he's amazing looking! The wings are just too awesome. Great job, it's not often you see amigurumis that structured.
