You will need:
8ply cotton or acrylic yarn in your choice of
colours
I used 8ply acrylic in green, blue and black
3.5mm hook
Yarn nee dle
Scissors
Pins
Stitch Markers
Polyester toy filling

US terms used:
Ch - Chain
SC - Singl e Crochet
Sl St - Slip Stitch
MC – Magic Circle
Inc – Increase (2 sc in same
stitch)
Dec – Decrease (sc two
stitches together)
* * - Repeat instructions
< > - All in same stitch
YO – Yarn over
Hdc – Half double crochet
Hdc2tog – half double crochet
two together

This pattern is suitable for all adventurous beginners and beyond . Prior knowledge of
basic crochet stitches is an advantage, however once you get going with the pattern
it is repetitive and actually quite easy.

If you change yarn weight be sure to adjust your hook size accordingly.

The finished dragon in my exa mple will end up approx. 22 cm long, however you can
make it larger or smaller at your discretion.

I hope you enjoy my pattern!

Turn the wings over so you are looking at the back. Fold the tip of the wing as indicated in
the picture. The orange dots indicate which points will me et, and the green line is where you
will fold. Using a needle and thread , tie the fold shut (where the red dot is ).
This gives the tips of the
wings some st ructure so they
sit nicely and are not floppy.

Assembly

First I like to create nostrils using the blue yarn and needle.
Loop yarn around 1 stitch 3 times on the edges of the nose
(see picture). Tie and weave in you ends.

Next, use pins to figure out where you want the eyes. I like to
position the eyes on the sides of the head. Using needle and
black yarn, sew small round bumps for the eyes. I like to use
one long thread for both eyes so I can pull them a little close
together creating slight indents on the face. To do this, once
you complete one, thread your needle through the face to the
other one and pull slightly tight before making the next one.

Ears are next. I suggest pinning both ears and both horns to
figure out how you like them positioned. I place my ears about
5 rows back from the eyes and a little further apart. Sew in place using the tails we left.

Head spikes are next. You want to position the strip to be
centred between the ears and ending just before the neck
crease. Sew the base of the spikes to the head so that it
stands upright.

Finally, pin the horns again. Behind the ears but closer
together, eit her side of the head spikes. Sew in place

Now the head is done! Next, w e move onto the legs!

Stuff the legs and pin in place. Make sure the toes are evenly
positioned on the top of the foot. I like the legs poking out the
sides of the body so it looks li ke he is lying on his belly. If you
decide to place them underneath, be prepared for him to be
front heavy. Ensure they are all evenly spaced. Sew in place.

Pin the tail spikes along the centre of the tail, starting just before the point. Sew the base i n place so
the spikes stand up.

Finally, the wings. This will seem strange but hang in there. Before pinning them, lay them flat so the
corners we folded before are underneath and you are looking at the top side. Fold the centre top point
down (along the pink line) to meet the centre bottom point ( pink dots ). Using needle and yarn, tie the
points together. Now pin to the body on the upper back and sew along the centre. The reason we do
the strange folds is so the wings sit up rather than drooping down.
