Introduction

A dragon wing design that was inspired by another slightly more complex design. In my attempt to see if I could simplify it, this is what I came up with.

I am unable to crochet with tension, so there isn't any gauge.

(But don't worry, I have found that even without using constant tension, my projects have always been very accurate.)

Materials List

Some yarn (use whatever yarn you are using on the project that you are going to attach these to)

Hook: Either use the same size as what you are using on your project, or the size that creates the effect that you like. (I used a G hook because that is what I was using on my project.)

Finished Size

With a G hook, mine is about 3 1/2" long, 2 1/4" wide (narrow end), and 3 1/4" wide (wide end). Size will vary with the size of hook and type of yarn used.

Gauge

None

Notes

The sc around the piece may have to be fiddled with a little to get the effect that you want.

And remember to make two wings for a pair.
