OK, Norberta is rolling along. I did the spines first because I was curious to see how it was done ~ it's made in one piece and is really easy as pie. Also made the belly piece ~ after I figured out w&t (wrap and turn) that was easy, too.

(doesn't show up, but the yarn's pink  Smiley  )

Definition of w&t is here:

Well, here they are! This was such a fun pattern, I made two:
First up is Mr. Dragon, who was made following all the directions as written, out of acrylic yarn: (Red Heart "Banana Berry" and "Lime")



And here he is with his girlfriend, Gertie the pink dinosaur. She's made of wool and was felted, so she's a bit smaller. She was made knit-side out, without wings, and a few flowers embroidered on the side pre-felting.



I really loved this pattern!

I have the back and the tummy done. Seemed like the perfect thing to do with some bright orange and green yarn from the stash. Yours are really cute, I can't wait to finish this.

Oh, I have to make this! I have a dragon "thing"... Yours are so adorable.

I'm currently in the middle of a "dragon stole" knitalong at Craft Wonderland, inspired by the Knitty vegan fox. My friends are finished, and I'm so jealous! And one friend even made a needle-felted dragon, too.

Yeah, I have a dragon problem...  Embarrassed
