Dragon Complete

I finished the dragon...

I'm quite happy with it. It was a challenge of a knit, but not undoable.

I have some thinking to do before I attempt it again, though. And yes, I'm going to attempt it again. I don't know what I'm going to put it on, but I want to wear this or carry it somehow.

The pattern... I don't like the way the pattern was written. But this is a me problem. 

The instructions were all there. It was just all the flipping through pages and checking stitches and such. I would love to have a good chart that I could just prop up so I wouldn't have to pick up a page every few stitches, but that's just a matter of situating things.

And it did come with a chart. I attempted to use the chart. But I could not get my head around it. 

Like I said, a me problem.

Now that I know how the thing works, it'll be easier to do a second time. And I can anticipate some of the problems I had before. 

But first I need to figure out where I'm going to use the design.

  4. You did a great job with this! It looks great and I love the colour! :)

    It's good you will be able to use it again even if the instructions were complex!

    Hope that your week is off to a good start :)

    1. I just don't know what to use it for. I'll have to figure that out first.

  5. It's beautiful! And I am so impressed at the speed you accomplished this in - this project must have gotten its hooks (no pun intended) into you.

    1. It's not like I've got anything else going on at the moment, so I could devote my full attention to it.

  10. Wow, it's really beautiful! Well done, looks very tricky. Could be pretty as a bag.

  11. That is very cool! I can't think of where to put it, though. On the back of a sweater? Or the front?

    1. Back. I mean, it could work on a front, but I think it'd be cooler on the back.

  12. That's amazing! If you can work in some colors I would totally purchase this. :) You are a true artist.

  13. Wow! That turned out awesome!! I love it! How difficult would it be for you could incorporate some Celtic designs?

    1. That depends. I assume there are stitch patterns already existing. I would not be able to crate Celtic designs in knit on my own. (Not familiar enough with them.)
