Purple Dragon

I was asked by a friend to make a Purple Dragon for her young daughter (age 2). It seemed that she has an imaginary friend called Purple Dragon that she carries around in her hand. So after some searching I found this site for a pattern of a Baby Snow Dragon. The pattern was nice and simple and fairly small.

I didn't make the eyelids but instead embroidered on some eyes because it was going to be for a young one.

I added wings and made them fairly simple.

WINGS - Make 2  (use secondary colour)
Row 1 - ch 2
Row 2 - 3 SC in second stitch from hook, ch 1 (3)
Row 3 - Turn wing around and crochet in other direction - 1 SC, 3 SC, 1SC, ch1 turn (5)
Row 4 - 1 SC in 2 stitches, 3 SC in 3rd stitch, 1 SC in 2 stitches, ch1 turn (7)
Row 5 - 2 SC in 1 stitch, 1 SC in 5, 2 SC in last stitch
Fasten off and weave in end

use main colour SC around the 2 sides of the wing.

Here are some photos of Purple Dragon.
