Looking for a dragon/knight sweater pattern
I'm looking for a dragon and/or knight sweater pattern to fit a 6-year old. Anyone know of any books or magazines that have one? I found one a few months ago and am kicking myself for not buying it!

Thanks!

Are you looking for a sweater with a "graph" of a Dragon or Knight to knit into the sweater, or for a sweater with... say ridges along the sleeve to make the dragon scales and such?

I have lots of patterns from my Grand mother that have "dinosaur" graphs that could very easily adjusted into a Dragon. They are very simple to knit and I have several vest type patterns as well.

I don't have anything fancier.

But the good news is you could created your own graph if that is what you are looking for!

I had a feeling that was it. I walked into the store and asked if they had a dragon pattern. She suggested I look through the books. This was the first one I picked up to look through. Must have been fate!

Hi Ingrid:

Your Dragon and Knight sweater looks fabulous! This is definitely the work of an experienced knitter.

I know this is pattern request is from 2005, but my son also wants a dragon sweater for Christmas. I tried the amazon link and it no longer works. Can anyone tell me if they have any ideas on where I can get a dragon sweater pattern for that a 9-year old boy would like. Thanks

The book is still out there; look at the bottom right if this page for a small picture of the pattern. There's a knight, castle and fire-breathing dragon.

This one has a dragon in the pattern--a little more sophisticated.

If you google 'dragon knitting chart' you can find several more--try under images.
