Leave long tail. Stuff the tail and attach it to the back of the body. Attach it to cover R8 at the top and R14 at the bottom. Sew it as seamlessly as possible so it looks like it’s part of the cube body.

Pinch two rows together when sewing as indicated by the arrow to get a curved tail.

Scales

Insert hook between R4 and R5 at the top of the head centering. Use contrasting color yarn for the following steps and try to work the short end of the yarn into it while you do it to hide it. Use the loops between rows as if they are sc loops to stitch into: (pictures of steps on the left)

ch × 2, [(dc, tr, dc) in same loop, sc, sl st] x 3, [(hdc, dc, hdc) in same loop, sc, sl st] x 3, (sc, hdc, sc) in same loop, sc, sl st.

Finish off then use a sewing needle to hide the end of the yarn into the body and cut the extra

Finish off, use a sewing needle to sew the end along the edge to don’t pull the yarn too much to keep the Fin end looking pointy.

Assembly

  • Attach stuffed legs to the bottom of the dragon body.
  • Attach Fins to the head between R8 and R9 on each side of the body
  • If you want a tongue, cut some pink or red felt and glue it one row below the eyes
