FO: Dragon Scarf (my first "design")
Hi folks-

A couple of weeks ago my son asked to wear one of my scarfs to preschool. I asked him if he would like me to make one for him...and of course he said yes. I had been looking around for a fun preschool-age scarf pattern but could not find one. After cruising around the internet, and using one of his toys for inspiration, I decided just to make my own pattern.

I used some knitting graph paper and drew out the design for the head. Then I went to my stitch pattern books to find something that looked dragon-like. I decided to make a short scarf that would just go around the neck once. And since we live in Minnesota I wanted it to be warm. The top and bottom were knitted seperately and seamed together. The eyes and head have a bit of polyfil in them to add dimension.

My son loves it... and I'm pretty happy with it too. :D I have written the pattern out. I'd like to design a few more animals in both preschool and little kid size.

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

Neat idea!

There is no right way to knit; there is no wrong way to knit. So if anybody kindly tells you that what you are doing is "wrong," don't take umbrage; they mean well. Smile submissively, and listen, keeping your disagreement on an entirely mental level. They may be right, in this particular case, and even if not, they may drop off pieces of information which will come in very handy if you file them away carefully in your brain for future reference. ~Elizabeth Zimmerman
