Wow! I would love to try to make this. Is the head all one piece or did you make several different pieces? Mainly the mouth I'm wondering about, as it looks attached and I have no idea how you might have done that! Amazingly talented!
It had about two feet on me, so probably about eight feet. It's actually all acrylic, which I know has a bad rep, but I've found it work really well for shaping. As for how much... maybe... 3 dozen skeins? It was in repayment for a bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue, so I wasn't exactly keeping track
That is pretty epic! I'm making a dragon, but even using aran weight (one up from DK?), he's only about 5 and a half when straight! (And I use all sorts of wool, so long as it's the right colour and cheap >_<#) He truly is impressive. I grovel before your awesomeness!!
Thanks! I don't generally use patterns, though there was a lot of repetition in the body. If you finish the end of the tail, after that it's mostly a series of balls, except missing the first few and last few rows... As for the head, even I'm not sure how it came out like that!
