This is my very first post to Craftster, and I'm stoked that it's for this awesome, awesome pattern.  I've been waiting to make this dragon for a little while now, and I'm so happy I finally did it!

Since I'm so new, I can't embed images, so please follow these links to view my little guy (who remains unnamed!):


I love him SO MUCH!  Thank you for this great pattern, Marjorie!

Welcome to Craftster! Your dragon turned out AWESOME! He is quite the handsome gent, you should be proud of him!

Still too few posts to embed images, but I've made two more of Marjorie's lovely dragons.

This one is for a friend.  I eventually posed him like the blue one.

And with my original

This one is for my mom for Mother's Day.  She said she wanted a dragon, and I know how nuts she is about Disney, so I made her a Mickey Mouse-inspired dragon.

EDITed to turn the links into images. Smiley

The Mickey dragon is a riot!

Now, somewhere in the mess that I call home, I have a baggie filled with dragon parts, minus the scales and wings. Now, I really need to dig it out and finish it!

The Mickey dragon is a riot!
Just got back from Disney World yesterday.  I wish I had seen that before I left.....

I have the majority of parts for both a purple and a pink dragon in my purse right now.  I could NOT get the purple yarn to cooperate with the wooden crochet hook that I brought with me to the airport for the flights to Disney.  In the hotel room, I found the metal crochet hook that I packed in my suitcase, but didn't have enough light to see the dark purple yarn, so started a pink one.  Put the crochet hook in my pocket for airport security on the way back, and was crocheting in pink for the return trip in the Orlando, Atlanta and Chicago-Midway airports.  The waitress at dinner last night was enchanted with the pink dragon parts too. 

I still need a purple body, one purple ear, all of the pink ear/ridges, part of one pink arm, and all of the eye-ridge pieces.  Then I will need to run through the sew them all together parts.

The pieces look to be about the right shape, but I still think I must be doing something wrong.  My yarns are both kind of fuzzy, and its really tough to see individual stitches.  I find that doing things "by feel", I tend to have more stitches in each round than I should.  So, for an "even" row (no increases or decreases), I tend to be doing the "last stitch" a stitch or two before the "last stitch" in the previous round.  I have been "correcting" by skipping a stitch here and there.  Any other suggestions?  Is anyone else having this sort of problem?

I did make my first parts in a yarn that was easier to see individual stitches on, but that one didn't come out anywhere near as cute as the fuzzier yarns did.

Obsessed with Monster High dolls lately.

Hi, I had so much fun, making my first dragon, who, by the way is in green camoflage varigated wool, so he really looks like he's got scales. I called him Ralph. When I crochet, I do it a really wierd, so the wool is coming in from the right rather than the left. I guess it's cos I've been knitting for so long, that I can't change which side the wool comes in and anyway it feels wierd trying to hold it in my left hand. I don't think my brain is set right, or should that be left....lol!!! This basically means that everything I crochet is inside out, but it so cool, cos it helps them look like they've got proper scales.
Any-who since Ralph, who holds my scissors, I've made Ivor whose a red Welsh dragon with grey ears and spikes, favourite snack food is Leeks and likes to hang on things eg. bedroom door handle! Fragon (named by my sister) whose from up North so he's a varigated white to blue dragon, he found some roses and thought that they would make a nice present and then Charlotte, she's varigated light to dark turquoise colour. She's Fragons' cousin and she wears a Tiara (that my sister made for her) and likes to grown sunflowers along side the roses in the Palace Gardens.

Thank you so much for the best Pattern in the world ever for Dragons!!!!!

I love this pattern!!  I actually saw the link on crochetville also and I made one for my son (he's 3-almost 4).  He loves him so much.  I can't express how thankful I am for people who come up with patterns and then have the generosity to post them for free.  Thanks so much!!

Wow your baby dragon is cute. I saw some of your other stuff too. You sure are talented. I can't wait to "hatch" my own baby dragon. I have a request for a pattern. How about a Griffin?
