A Welsh Dragon

I’m swamped with editing work at the moment. So, in lieu of writing, I thought I’d share a recently finished object:

He’s made with wool from West Yorkshire Spinners and a pattern from the book Crochet Ever After by Brenda Anderson.

  4. He is most impressive!! I can imagine him, not as a scarf, but as a standing model beside my gorgeous water dragon, Arthur! You have magic in your hooks Dr Snail!!

    • Yes, they look good together – I did go to a real yarn shop to buy them to make sure they really were right – the colours on a screen are never true to life, are they?

  7. Draig golygus iawn, dear Snail. Traditional colours, and a friendly expression, too! His scales look a bit like red poppies on a green field.

    • He has come out just as I planned – I did wonder whether I would be able to find yarn in just the right colours, and was lucky to be able to do so… as I said to nettyg, I did go to a real shop to select the colours, as what you see on a web site does not always look like what you get in the parcel through the post!

    • I’m delighted with the scale stitch – it’s easy and quick once you get the hang of it. I did modify the design a bit (as usual), but the scales were perfect. I’m planning to use the stitch for other projects… dragon-scale gauntlets, perhaps.
