Virkade drakar – Crochet dragons

Det är något speciellt med drakar, eller hur?

Dessa båda drakar är gjorda efter Lucy Ravenscar’s gratis mönster “Slightly fierce but friendly dragon” (ungefär “Något grymma men snälla drakar”) som finns här: Lucyravenscar Crochet Creatures.
Fast mina båda drakar här ser ut som om mönstret borde heta “… och inte så snälla drakar”.

Jag virkade in en tunn ståltråd i ytterkanten på vingarna så att dom skulle kunna hålla formen bättre. Ståltråden var tvungen att vara väldigt tunn eftersom drakarna är så små. Jag hittade den tråd jag behövde i ett ståltrådskantat dekorband.

There is something special about dragons, don’t you think?

Both of these dragons are made after Lucy Ravenscar’s free pattern “Slightly fierce but friendly dragon”, available here: Lucyravenscar Crochet Creatures.
Although my dragons look as if the pattern was named “… and not so friendly dragon”.

I crocheted a thin wire around the perimeter of the wings so they could keep their shape better. The wire had to be very thin because the dragons are so small. I found the thread I needed on the inside of a wire-lined decorative ribbon.

    I made one of these as well. I didn’t put wire in the wings but wish I had. I did make a stem from pipe cleaners I twisted together and put inside the tail so I can pose that. The next one I make will have wire in the wings as well.

    The green dragon is ridiculously perfect. Everything on your site inspires me, and so now I’m making a dragon of my own from Lucy’s pattern. If When I finish it, I’ll post a picture for you.

    Anywho, I bookmarked your site and I’ll keep checking back at your beautiful creations. Thank you! c:

    Thank you for posting.
    I just saw your dragon on Facebook and wanted to know if this is a newly modified pattern or the same pattern as the larger dragon (just using a smaller hook).

      Hi Dee,
      Thank you for liking my tiny dragon! It is the same pattern from Lucy Ravenscar, but I used a smaller hook and thread, /Anita
