*After attaching the legs onto the body of the dragon, fold them like they are shown in the images below. I attached the sides of the legs to the body so they wouldn’t move out of place.*

Mane on the back:
1. You can use whatever color you want. I used an ombre teal color which worked beautifully. I used an entire skein for this.
2. Just attach the yarn with a cow hitch knot. Do this all around and make sure that none of the cream yarn is showing.

Tail hairs:
1. With teal color. Create a slip knot. Insert it into the side of the end of the tail. Do this about 5.5 inches from the end. Chain 5. Slip stitch into the area next to where you first inserted the slip knot. Chain 5. Slip stitch into the area next to the first slip stitch. Repeat this process until you get all the way around the tip of the tail. You will want to increase the number of chains as you go around so create a feathered look. The tip of the tail should have the most chains.
