MOVIE SPOILERS: If making Toothless from How To Train Your Dragon 2, make an additional spike strip and sew them next to each other down the back. Embroider blue nostrils too if you’d like.

Head
Make 2
Second one omit round 9.
Use a stitch marker for rounds. Will be called “neck marker”.

Round 1: mr 4

Round 2: inc around (8)
Round 3: inc around (16)

Round 4: (sc, inc) repeat around (24)

Round 5: (2sc, inc) repeat around (32)

Round 6: (3sc, inc) repeat around (40)

Round 7: (4sc, inc) repeat around (48)

Round 8: 21sc, inc, sc (place a marker here, “nose marker”), inc, 24sc (50)

Round 9: sc around leave markers in place sl st f/o (50)

See pictures. Put head pieces together right sides facing each other. It does not matter which one is the “top”. Put the two nose markers together. Matching up their stitches use one of the markers to pin them together, removing the other marker. The neck markers at the top will help find the neck opening. You will not sew this gap closed. The neck markers will not line up.

You will sew the halves together with sc around working right to left. Line the pieces up starting at the nose marker. You might need to pin every few stitches until you get to the starting stitch. Make a slip knot as if you are going to start a chain. Pull the slip knot through both pieces starting at the 5th stitch from the neck marker, chain 1, and sc around through both pieces until you are at the 5th stitch from the other neck marker. Do not fasten off. Turn right side out.

Construction
Sew back legs towards the tail after the chest.

Sew front legs slightly flat, slightly on the sides, and on either side where the chest begins to increase.

Sew wing arms onto body before wings. To sew wings on easier mark where they will go with pins and pull the pins out as you sew them down. The wings should start even with the front legs and they will meet in the middle.

Sew small wings behind big wings.

Sew tail wings at the tip of the tail.

Sew 2 small horns side by side in the middle top of the head.

Sew 2 ears next to the small horns on the top of the head.

Sew 1 small horn next to each ear on the side of the head.

Sew 1 smallest horn next to each small horn towards bottom of head.

Sew spikes down the back starting even with the beginning of the wings.

Make and glue/sew eyes on.

Weave in all ends.
