Just finished this for my 4 year old grandson. He loves the movie How To Train your Dragon.
I varied the yarn used and went for solid color on the ears, and tail. I also used 15mm plastic eyes.
the pattern can be found as a pdf file at the following location:

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.

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 say a dark gray/ 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.

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
