I just downloaded that pattern...my bedroom is Asian Modern...I think he'd look so cute on my bed..or dresser!
Consider putting scales down his back too. I thought it would be too much for a 4 year old, however, I am mailing them to my daughter and if she would prefer them, she can stitch them on.
I used the tail pattern to make the scales but, only did the increases until there was 13 stitches.
For the teeth, I did the same but, only went to 9 stitches then removed them to another needle until I have 4 of them. Then picked them all up and knit 2 row and did a BO.
The pattern calls for them to be made of felt but, I liked knitting them up better.
That is AWESOME!!! I LOVE it!!
He is so awesome. Reminds me of "snake" stuffed animal I had as a kid. I am going to have to make him too for my granddaughter. Love him!!!
OOOO I just got a wicked idea...I have a pattern for "dragon skin" scarf...If I knit his body out of that it would look like scales...in say a dark gray/green...black ears..tail...nostrils...yup that's a plan!
I'm not sure what makes him more adorable..his eyes..his nostrils..or his "fire"..he sure is great though!
do read the pattern - as it is supposed to be a scaly pattern.
You can see it in the varigated yarn but, its hard to see it in the pic.

That is so cute....how old is your grandson? What a great idea to get kids to put on a scarf... Yona
OMG, your scarf is SO cute! And......How to Train Your Dragon was one of my favorite kid movies in a long time!
This dragon is so creative . What an awsome job. I'm sure it keeps your grandson warm as well as having a wonderful toy to play with when you are out and about. Robin
