Wondering How to Crochet A Dragon?
Maybe you’re wondering if you need a special skill set to crochet a dragon. A dragon amigurumi pattern is much like any other amigurumi pattern. The crochet dragon pattern will likely start with a magic circle (or magic ring), then you’ll work a single crochet in the round and periodically work a single crochet increase and an invisible decrease. It will be helpful to know how to work double crochet stitches, half double crochet, and how to slip stitch, but your crochet dragon pattern may not call for those stitches.
