Head and Body:

**Crochet around the wire


**I like to keep my rounds in the center of his body (in this case, his underbelly) so in
some areas, I added extra stitches to a round to keep the center consistent. There is a
lot of room for flexibility so add stitches as you see fit

**The wire exiting the legs will be inserted directly into Haku's body before sewing
his legs on. I ended up folding the wire for several reasons: to shorten/adjust the
length as much as I needed, to hide sharp ends, as well as to make it a little sturdier.

Thank you, thicker wire really makes a difference in poseability, and I like to needlefelt faces to get more
detail.

Awesome! Needle felting always seemed like a good idea. I just haven't been brave enough to try it yet for
anything more than maybe a solid-colored nose or pupil. I'm too afraid of messing up but yours looks so
good that I might have to give it a shot again!

I find needlefelting to be rather forgiving (if sharp and painful when you miss). Details can be pushed back
into shape, but only up to a point, if they are too dense it may be better just to rip it off and start again. Just
remember that only animal fibers will felt, so you can't felt acrylic-acrylic, but wool- to pretty much anything
else.
So little! That's really impressive, what size hook did you use?

I can't remember whether it was a 3.5 or 2.75, but he is pretty small, about 2 ft when stretched straight. The
Shimmer yarn I used is pretty thin, so that probably contributed at least in part.

Thank you for saying so.
The whiskers are indeed wire-wrapped, I was just very careful when doing so. And I gained a new-found
respect for asian dragons when I first watched the movie, I love how he flew like a ribbon in the wind. I was
lucky that I discovered the thicker wire when I did, it's perfect for posing something like him.

Wow, very careful. How do you wrap the ends and keep it from falling off the end?
I need to get some thicker wire; it's nice for some things, but I used it recently in a large animal, about 11
inches tall, and it really could bend so much more.

I used some tacky glue intermittently along the length of the wire, and a little more of it on the ends. It
sticks pretty well, but I think fabric glue would probably work better.
