I finished these some time ago, but completely forgot to post them here. They are Dragonets, small or young dragons. They are supposed to be 'life-size', at about 17.5" long with a 22" wingspan.





I experimented with two different types of eye, the Sapphire Dragonet has cat-type safety eyes while the Ruby Dragonet has clear glass beads. The wings are not wired, but are still fairly poseable because of the stiffness of the crochet, as are their necks and tails.

I just love your dragonets - they are so perfect and lifelike!! Well, that is, if dragons existed... Wink
Both of the eyes you've chosen look really cool.

These are amazing great job. I usually like the safety eyes better but I really am drawn to the glass eyes with the reddish yarn. great job.
