from the tip of the triangle. - Using fabric glue, secure the yarn in place. - Trim the felt cutting from one piece of yarn to the next and then scallop the edges between the yarn pieces. - Secure wings onto the Dragons head using a glue gun.

HORNS (make 4: 2 small, 2 large) Cut the following shapes out of dark brown felt. Apply glue with a glue gun and roll into cone shapes (similar method here). Make two larger cones for the back and two smaller cones for the front. Glue them onto Dragons head.

LEGS (make 2) + BODY Using green yarn, R1: 6 Sc in magic ring (6 sts) R2: Sc 2 in each sc around (12 sts) R3: Sc 12 For the first leg, fasten off (no need to leave long end for sewing). For the second leg, do not cut off the yarn. Chain 1 and join with slip stitch to any sc on first leg. *Slip stitch in next sc around on same leg, Chain 1, then slip stitch to next sc on opposite leg*, rep 3 times. The stitch count gets a little messy with these joins, so I single crocheted around the legs and joins for Row 4 as follows:

R4: Sc 22 R5-12: Sc 22 Fasten off and leave long end for sewing. Sew body to head. ARMS (make 2) Using green yarn, R1: 6 sc in magic ring. (6 sts) R2-4: Sc 6

Fasten off and leave long end for sewing. Attach to sides of body. TAIL Using green yarn, R1: 4 sc in magic ring. (4 sts) R2-3: Sc 4 R4: *Sc 1, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 2 times (6 sc) R5: *Sc 2, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 2 times (8 sc) Fasten off and leave long end for sewing. Attach to bottom-back of Dragon to help give him balance. If you want your Dragon to appear like he is leaning back and about to give out a puff of fire, angle the tail upwards. Adding scaled detailing to body:

- Cut out above shape from beige felt. Wrap tan embroidery floss around felt piece applying glue dots on the back along the way to secure the floss in place. Glue felt piece with embroidery floss onto body of Dragon when complete. Have a very Happy Chinese New Year, and have fun making these legendary creatures :) They would make extra special gifts for babies born this year or for people who are the Year of the Dragon. Once again, please check out my full blog here to see close-up shots of all of Dragons details! Happy crocheting!
