Fierce but Friendly Dragon
This a really great pattern for a dragon. You can make him fierce or friendly. Or black or green. Or in my case navy and gold. Mine however looks quite strange right now as he only has a body and looks like a deformed snake. He will achieve a great look quite soon though.
However, he is for someone else so I can't really even name him. I guess I can't even say for sure it is a him and not a her. If this was my dragon, it would be a her and I would make her green and call her Saphira. Probably because I am in the middle of reading Eragon. Last month this would have been a Norbert.
I am actually really enjoying this pattern and I will hopefully have it done by the end of the week! You should definitely check out the pattern and make your own lovely little dragon.

All I did to mix this up was start with less stitches than I did in the adult sized one. I started with 54 stitches and basically guessed my way through the rest of the hat. I will say I think it turned out adorable.

After you get your supplies together you take the hair pin and your ribbon and slide it through as I did above.
Flip the pin over so you cannot see where you glued it in the back. If there is ribbon sticking off the edge just trim it down with some scissors.
Here you need to take the ribbon and pull it up towards you and over top of the right bar of the pin and slide it back through the middle. Kind of like you are braiding it in with the hair pin. Then continue by pulling the ribbon over top of the left bar and slide it back through the middle so it pops out on the bottom side of the right bar.

By time the 7th movie is out everyone has taken a quiz to find out which house they would be in. I, obviously, would be in Slytherin. But if you really want to know for sure, you will have to knit up your own Sorting Hat.

Duuuuude the Sea Turtle- So cute and I have recently been loving little animals that are so quick to knit!
Little Lobster- I first came across this adorable little lobster while browsing but the real gem was discovered when I actually looked at the full picture instead of the thumbnail- the mermaid. I mean what gets more summery and beachy than that!! So here is a pdf of both patterns. Little Lobster and Baby Mermaid.
Fishing Game- How many of you ever played the magnetic fish game with the little fishing poles when you were younger? Because I certainly did all the time!!! This is a highly portable version of this game and the water even turns into a carrying case for this game!! This would be a perfect game to bring to the beach for the kiddies!!
Jellyfish- Speaking of games, if you're Dory from finding Nemo, we can bounce on top of the jellyfish. I love this little guy and I think he would look super cute in many different colors. I just love how the little spirals come down as the tentacles!
Throughout the post I linked directly to the blog posts so you could quickly check out the details of the projects.
Now here you can share your work on Raverly
