Chinese Dragon Blanket
Chinese Dragon Blanket
Chinese Dragon Blanket

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Simple Crochet Stitches
  • Color Changes Within The Row

Pattern Description:

Originally I created this blanket over 15 years ago. At that time there was no such thing as Graph Software. I used graph paper, markers, pencils and eraser when I created this piece of tapestry.
Recently I got many requests for the pattern so I decided to write it up in simple to follow crochet instructions that anyone could do. It was a real challenge to put this into written form, but I did it!
This piece can be made in 3 sizes depending on the crochet stitch you use (easy instruction are included to make these changes in size). The sizes are: Pillow Size, Lap Afghan Size, & Blanket Size (oversize throw). You're going to be amazed at how simple and quick this piece works up. When you're finished your going to have an impressive Chinese Dragon Blanket, that you can keep for yourself or give to a friend/family member.
With the holidays just around the corner it's a perfect gift!
All of the instruction on how to create this blanket are included in this extensive pattern. All you do is follow the simple instructions and your done!
It's a plus if you know how to change yarn colors in the middle of a row (CBN, Intarsia Crochet, Colorblock Crochet, Tapestry Crochet, Photo Crochet, all of these techniques are similar to what you will be doing in this pattern).
I call this technique CPC and I will be offering more patterns in this technique in the future.

**Note: I've put a limit on the number of copies of this pattern that I will sell. I don't want this to become an over produced tapestry.**

***FYI!! Just added a revised copy of this pattern.**

Thank You!
Happy Crocheting!
