Yes - you can DRAW WITH CROCHET!

The technique used for this "Crochet Drawing" is Filet Crochet.

I kept the Edging of "The White Dragon in Filet Crochet" simple with a rectangular shape.  It is 14 Inches wide and 18 Inches High - it could be framed against a dark background to bring out the Image of the Dragon - with a mesh background and border.

Filet Crochet is a crochet stitch design involving blocks and mesh - some of the mesh is just square/rectangular empty blocks - and some of the mesh is more complicated with "lacet stitches", which is what is used for the mesh background around the Image of the Dragon in this, "The White Dragon".

Though I got the pattern from one of Elizabeth Hiddleson's Original Books of her Crochet Designs, Volume 29 - my real inspiration is from one of Anne McCaffrey's book on the "Dragonriders of Pern":   "The White Dragon"!  Reading Anne McCaffrey's books about the Dragonriders of Pern, I discovered a love for Dragons - and their smaller cousins, "Fire Lizards" (actually small dragons)!

It was fun to make - though rather complicated!!

I've used Filet Crochet to "draw" a few other pictures - some my own design, some others' patterns - here are pictures of a few of them:
