Way back in August 2009 this dragon made an appearance at the very bottom of a post. While I love the way the pattern looks, it was a lot of work. My biggest problem was using poor quality thread; also it was size 50, which I had never tried before. At the time of the post, I think I had broken the thread at least 5 times. Someone suggested thread conditioner, which made a huge difference in keeping the thread from breaking.
Minor Norwegian Ice Dragon
No amount of blocking or starching could convince him to be a free-hanging ornament, so he is in my Finished Objects Scrapbook. If you decide to try this pattern, be sure to...
- Use thread you are familiar with
- Make sure you know how to make SSR (Single Shuttle Split Ring)
- Know how to make a twisted picot; I didn't, and it shows.
