I bought this pattern when it was new on Ravelry and wanted to write a review because it was a lot of fun to make. The pattern includes a lot of options for customizing the dragon and adding fun details. I especially love the way the eyes look with the upper and lower eyelids. One of these days I will make another one since my daughter was jealous of my son's (I have 3 kids so I may well have to make 3 of them!) The written details in the pattern were very helpful as well as the photographs. So even if you're a crochet novice it is very a doable project.

I just fell in love with this one.  Beautiful and quite unique, this Dragon Scarf by MyntKat is really pretty special.

This is a crochet design -- and I think we should carry more of those, don't you think? 

The pattern is not part of this kit and can be gotten via the designer's Ravelry page here.

The Design

Here is what the designer writes: 

This pattern is one-size (adult, but can be made for smaller sizes by using smaller yarn and hooks) and highly customizable! The pattern comes with 16 pages of written instructions (abbreviated) and over 150 full color photos (separate file for easier printing).

The Yarn and Colorways

This kit is yarn and yarn alone, enough to make a substantial scarf in this very intriguing pattern!

 We also have added an option to get a pair of 18mm safety eyes, with a somewhat reptilian look.  :-)

There are so many marvelous combinations of colors that this scarf can be knit in -- we are starting with two. 

Please note that we are not putting together kits that use the same yarn or colorways that MyntKat used.  You can see what we offer in the inset photos on the top picture and again below that.  The other photos are being used with her permission and show some of the gorgeous scarves she has made for this design.

I decided that this would work best crocheted in a very washable yarn -- while this yarn would keep an adult toasty warm, it can also be machine washed and dried.  And as I could see this scarf being dragged into all sorts of games if made for a child one would want it so that that would be absolutely fine. 

The original scarves used roughly between 750 - 950 yards (686 - 869 m) divided into the two colors, one solid and one variegated. 

From Universal Yarns we brought in, for the main solid colorway, their Classic Worsted. This 80% Acrylic/ 20% Wool with 197 yards/ 100g ball.

***

Kit #1 will include the Classic Worsted in a deep evergreen called Christmas Green.  

The contrasting color in is Classic Worsted Tapestry, with the same yardage and fiber composition.  The yarn is dyed in long printed repeats with slowly changing colors -- it includes cream and olive, blues and purples.  

Sorry - Kit 1 is sold out.

***

Kit #2 will have the Classic Worsted in Aqua. The variegated yarn is Universal's Classic Worsted LP, again the same yardage and composition and long printed color runs.  Here the colors include pale blues, medium blues and aquas.  

***

Each kit will include three skeins of the solid color and two of the variegated. 

And should you wish to, you can add a pair of reptilian safety eyes in either green or aqua to your order.  

The Pattern

Remember!  You must must must get the pattern from MyntKat's Ravelry page here. 

Fun and exciting to create!
