Boyd’s Dragon Head cross stitch pattern was inspired by a Faunaverse photograph of a Boyd’s Forest Dragon — a tree dwelling lizard native to the tropical jungles of northern Australia.
If you’re a fan of Fauaverse poetry, you might recognise the distinctive dragon head from the cover of their books and logo.
This awesome cross stitch creates a realistic Boyd’s Dragon head. Using 38 DMC thread tones, you’ll capture the reptile’s skin texture and colouring in vivid detail.
We’ve removed the background for you, but suggest using plain black Aida cloth. This also mimics the dark jungle atmosphere.
PLEASE NOTE: your download pack contains an extra chart that has been specially formatted for Pattern Keeper App. We recommend using PK to manage your cross stitch projects.
