Hi guys, after entering my crochet dragon in an art contest I didn't have it for a couple of weeks that's why I didn't share any pics of it with you all, because I didn't get any before I submitted it. Anyway after finally getting it back yesterday I got a couple of pics for you all. The art contest was being held at a library near by here and when I submitted it they said they would call us and tell us if I won. So I waited and didn't get any phone call and a couple of weeks later I was going to be going to the town the library was in for some supplies so I called the library and asked if I could pick the dragon up and they said yes you can pick it up any time. So I decided that when I went to town I would pick the dragon up on the way back. So I walked in to the library after I had done all of my shopping and I walked over to the table where I saw my dragon and I was a 1st place tag on it!!! woo hoo!!! I was pretty happy when I saw it but now I'm wondering why they didn't call me since I won like they said they would. They also said that the winner would get some money and I didn't get that either yet. I'm thinking maybe they'll send it by mail. Anyway I don't really care much about the money or that they didn't call me I'm just really happy that I won. It was nice finally getting the dragon back after a long time. Oh and I forgot to say I made a little rider for the dragon too with a sword and shield. Anyway, I should stop blabbing and show you pics of the dragon and its rider. Here they are. I'm pretty sure that this is the best thing I've crocheted yet. It tops my other projects. I love making dragons and hope to make a bunch more in the near future. I've always liked dragons and its plenty fun designing and coming up with the shapes needed to make the dragon. But often I have to undo some parts and redo them to make them look better. Its all trial and error. But I'm very happy with how he turned out. There I go off again blabbing, lol. Here, I'm going to stop and post some pictures now.  Smiley








It took me about a week to make. The dragon is about 15 inches long from head to tail and the wingspan is about 20 inches long from wing tip to wing tip. The saddle is removable and the sword and shield are removable as well. So is all of the riders clothes and belt. Now before you ask me I don't have a pattern as it would be too complicated to write down. I do have some rough notes and I plan on making them in to a video tutorial for people to crochet their own dragon. I didn't record anything for the rider though but I can probably remember what I did for him and his accessories.

Comments are more than welcome as I'd love to hear what you all think! Smiley

Forgot to say that the rider is only about 5-6 inches tall surprisingly he took quite some time to make. I guess it was just all of those accessories.  Cheesy

Thank you! His wings are my favorite part too. They were quite a pain to make but they were totally worth it in the end. I go to far reaches to make my amigurumi projects good no matter how much of a pain they are.
