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.

  1. I love dragons! I just did eight of Drake from Mojo Mojo design. They came out great! They have all been sent to nieces, nephews. They love them! I will have to try some of these other designs.

    1. This is a collection of crochet dragons from various designers that I found from various sources. To get details on the patterns, just click the link for each dragon and it will take you to the source of the pattern where you can get more information on that particular pattern.

  2. Hi, your dragons are fabulous and very creative. My grandsons love them! Now they’d like to take it up a notch and wear dragon slippers.
    We’ve found dragon tears slippers and leg warmers but they want the “dragon ate my foot” slippers. Whatcha got up your sleeve?

    1. The dragon patterns are a collection of patterns from other crochet designers. I’m glad you love them as much as I do!! I’m not familiar with the slipper pattern you mentioned. I would suggest a search on Google, Pinterest or Ravelry to find the one you’re thinking of!

  3. Those are ADORABLE. My kids and I are a family of nerds (is that the correct word these days?), and we love sci-fi/fantasy. Dragons rank #1in our books. It’s just a shame they didn’t design Asian dragons. How cute could they make those???

  4. Thanks so much.
    The dragon bag has ‘got me’. No young lady is too young to receive a dragon bag, like she was born a couple of months ago, and I’m in the process of creating a dragon greeting card for her; her name is Quinn.
    Thank you again,
