I wanted to tat this earlier but was scared off by the SSSR (Single shuttle split ring). I finally tried it but gave up and used two shuttles and split rings instead. I think the boys would really love these flying dragons. Too bad I ran out of perle cotton threads in red, otherwise one would definitely be red.
The pattern is by Anne Bruvold. Thank you for a very interesting pattern. It isn't as difficult as I thought it would be. Try it!
