Decided to add the Winged Dragon Square to this post, since the center dragon pretty much starts the same way. Just scroll down after the applique. :hook

Just came up with this today, I noticed someone was looking for a flat dragon. Sorry about the pics not being to great, I used my scanner. Oh well. :hook

First wing:

Row 1: Sl st in next dc (of body), ch 9, sc in 2nd chain from hook, 1 sc in each of the 7 remaining chains. Slst in same st as first slst, ch1 and turn.
Row 2: 1 sc in each of the next 6 sc, ch1 and turn.

Row 6: 1 sc in each of the next 4 sc, sl st in next sl st.

Finish off leaving a long tail for sewing or Finish off and weave in ends.

Notes on making it in thread (added 8/31/08):
With thread and a size 7 steel hook the Dragon Applique is 2 ½”h x 2 ¼”w.
You may want to add an extra dc to make head more pronounce.
If making a bookmark, you may want to work through both dc loops and sl st loop when doing the 2nd wing. So there isn’t a definite wrong side.





Enjoy!!!!

I really appreciated your posting this pattern! I love dragons and dinosaurs and large reptiles like that, so this was great! It also inspired me to make an afghan featuring the winged dragon squares, along with a couple others that I designed myself. If you'd like to see it, I posted it on my blog at: http://oflions.wordpress.com/2010/10/11/hello-world/ Thanks again!
