Red Dragon Wings Add-On

RED DRAGON WINGS ADD-ON: This is an "add-on" for the Red Dragon pattern. I realized it didn't have any wings, and for those of you who want that feature, well, here it finally is. =)



MATERIALS:
Lion Brand Jiffy, 1 skein "True Red" & small amount of black yarn
size I or J crochet hook (I used size I)
yarn needle

Some stitches/abbreviations used in this pattern:

Dec1 = Insert hook in next stitch and pull up a loop (2 loops on hook). Now, insert hook into the next stitch and pull up a loop (3 loops on hook). Yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook. [1 stitch has been decreased]

 
WINGS:
Make 2.

With red yarn, ch 2. 3 sc in 2nd ch from hook. Ch 1, turn.
Row 1: 2 sc in first sc, sc in next sc, 2 sc in last sc. Ch 1, turn.
Row 2: 2 sc in first sc, sc in each of next 3 sc, 2 sc in last sc. Ch 1, turn.
Row 3: 2 sc in first sc, sc in each of next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc, sc in next sc, dec1 over last 2 sc. Ch 1, turn.
Row 4: Sc in each of next 7 sc, 2 sc in last sc. Ch 1, turn.
Row 5: 2 sc in first sc, sc in each of next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc, sc in each of next 3 sc, 2 sc in last sc. Ch 1, turn.
Row 6: (Sc in first sc, ch 2, sl st in same sc), sl st in each of next 4 sc, (sc in next sc, ch 2, sl st in same sc) twice, sl st in each of next 4 sc, (sc in next sc, ch 2, sl st in same st).
Sl st approx. 8 sts down the side of the wing to meet up with the other tail of yarn.
Fasten off, leaving a length of yarn for sewing, and sew to back of dragon's body.
If desired, embroider black lines to accentuate the look of the wings, as shown in the photo.
