Let There Be Dragons!

Well, one dragon anyway!  


Our grandson, who loves to "roar-rrrrr", will be getting this.  It's actually a sleeping bag, believe it or not.  It's crocheted with a double strand of thick yarn with a size Q crochet hook - almost the size of a broomstick.  Not the easiest thing on arthritic fingers!

The pattern is the 'Bulky & Quick Dragon Blanket' designed by MJ's Off the Hook Designs and is available on Ravelry.  If you end up making one, I would recommend you buy one additional ball of each of the main colours.  I had to re-order  extra to complete this one.

Today your quote is from Peter Yarrow...."Puff, the Magic Dragon, lived by the sea, and frolicked in the Autumn Mist in a land called Honah Lee.  Little Jacky Paper loved that rascal Puff, and gave him strings and sealing wax and other fancy stuff"

  2. I never would have guessed that it's a sleeping bag! Pretty nifty :)
    Seems there have been a lot of super-thick yarns and knits popping up online lately, and I sometimes think about trying one but you've confirmed my suspicion that working at that scale would be very tough for my hands. Guess I'll just continue to enjoy seeing others' creations :)
