Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Cross Stitch

Pattern Description:

This sinuous green dragon could have crept off the pages of any number of fantasy stories. With eyes that smolder like the fire in his belly, he is watchful, cautious, protective of his treasure.

When I was a young tween, I read the Hobbit. After that I drew dragons everywhere. I still love drawing dragons. I wanted to capture in an unmoving picture a hint of how such a fantastic creature may have have moved. I always pictured something between a reptile and a big predatory feline. Strong, silent, dangerous and vaguely ominous.

This pattern measures 6.5"x7" on 14 Count Aida. At 92x99 stitches, it would be smaller or larger depending on the weave of the fabric you stitch on. This would make a lovely gift for the fantasy geek in your life. Or you could just keep it yourself!

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Approximately 7 inches on 14 ct, 92x99 stitches


  • DMC floss (see description)
  • Aida or similar

You Will Also Need:

  • Needle, scissors
