Dragon as Vest... finished!


Ruby
Originally uploaded by littlekidd.
Hi there!
Just wanted to share my "Nasty Dog Dragon" vest, finished this weekend. The colors are different, and there's a little fire coming out of her mouth, but otherwise I stayed true to the pattern. (Oh, except it's on a vest, not a scarf.) It's done in Lavold's "Silky Wool." My son, Zack (aka "Brave Sir Zack") is the model. We have a whole series of bedtime stories about "Brave Sir Zack" and his dragon "Ruby." Hence the color change on the pattern. This was REALLY FUN. It's easier than you think, because many of the blocks of color are so small you need only a short strand of yarn, rather than a tangly bobbin. LOT of ends, but it's worth it.

    Great idea! I was thinking that design was "wasted" on a scarf.
