Hit the road Punch and Judy, here are Dante and Daphne! These hand-operated thespians from issue 85 are just the thing for an impromptu bit of theatre – is the world ready for an all-dragon retelling of Romeo and Juliet?
Created in the amigurumi style, these intermediate makes are designed for adult-sized hands, but could be scaled down by subbing the aran-weight yarn with DK or 4ply cotton. For adventurous hooksters, the pattern is just a jumping off point – try adding spikes, teeth, a plume of fire that unrolls from under the tongue… the possibilities are endless!
