“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”
― Neil Gaiman, Coraline

This pattern was inspired by my son and his love of dragons. <3 It includes both the blanket and dragon buddy. The blanket can be made from a toddler/preschool size all the way up to adult by adding extra rows and spikes. It also turns into a backpack with a pouch for the dragon buddy!!!!
