    Step 8

    The leash is knitted using a basic 5 stitch eye cord.

    Cast on 5 stitches with a pair of double pointed needles leaving a 12" tail. Don't turn your work as you knit, slid it back to the right and keep knitting. Knit to the length you need. I used 100% wool so I could felt it and make it stronger. I made it 24" longer than it should be. This will allow for shrinkage of the wool and the hand hold.

    Before casting off on your eye cord attatch the lanyard to your stitches. Cut 12" from end of your yarn and thread through the stitches on the lanyard going back and forth several times to make sure the leash stays in place.

I wouldn't leave my poor dragon (if I had a dragon) on the floor- I would just let him sit on my shoulder, like a little parrot!
Now THAT'S sure to get people looking at you!!

Don't you just love dragons, rats, and snakes? (how would you put a harness on a snake?..)
