#147 Dratini


I am hoping that with the completion of Dratini will lead to the creation of both Dragonair and Dragonite in the future.  The eyes are made with felt but they could have been made bedspread cotton just as easy.  The decision is up to the person making Dratini.  The hardest part of Dratini was the ears, getting them fold like they are.

  1. Just come across your blog - I love it! Crochet and pokemon are two of my favourite things. If you threw a bit of baking in here too we'd probably have to get married.
    Will bookmark this to put on my list of things to make :)

    1. Dratini's length will depend on you. When made him for the first time according to pattern, he was about 12 inches long from head to tail point. You can add rows on Body and Belly to make him longer.

    1. Fold ear where sc indicated are touching. Working through both thicknesses, sc in next 2 sc. Now working in single thickness, sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc. Please let me know if that helps.
