Description

Dragons are generally portrayed as fearsome monsters in the myths and legends in which they appear, but I was always more attracted to them as magical creatures that humans could form a bond with. As a child I imagined finding an egg and hatching my own dragon friend, which is why I wanted to create these little dragon hatchlings and their eggs.

In these PDF instructions you will find patterns for three different dragons, the smallest is the Tiny Dragon Hatchling at 1.5”/4 cm tall; the other two Dragon Hatchlings are slightly larger with the standing one being 5”/12 cm long and the sitting one 2.5”/6 cm tall. They have been designed to be made with minimal sewing together, and the small size means that legs, horns, spines (and wings for the Tiny Dragon) can be made as you crochet.

There is also a selection of patterns to choose from to make the eggs for each of these dragons, in two different sizes. Most of them use two colours of yarn to give the eggs enough stiffness to keep their shape and to make interesting patterns suitable for a dragon’s egg.

These dragon hatchlings will make great presents for anyone who loves dragons, and having an egg to open adds an extra layer of excitement. They would be great to make for children’s parties, and would be good alternative Easter presents. They’re not just for children – I have a couple of dragons perched on my monitor, and a Tiny Dragon Hatchling would look great turned into a keychain.

The patterns are quite straightforward and suitable for beginner/intermediate crocheters. The instructions are detailed and easy to follow if you know the basic stitches and techniques used to make amigurumi. They are written in English using US crochet terms, and the list of abbreviations includes the UK alternatives. The patterns are in a downloadable PDF file and you will need Adobe Reader to open it. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have as you are making them.

To make them you will need:
Small amounts of yarn for each dragon (5 – 10g in total, depending on size) and the same for each egg. I used double knitting weight (DK) yarn*, but other thicknesses of yarn will work, just change hook size as necessary.
Black yarn for eyes and mouths.
Contrasting colours such as yellow, orange, green or red for the eyes.
Small amount of stuffing for each dragon.
3.5mm (E) hook – use this for all patterns unless otherwise stated.
4mm (F) hook – use for eggs made with two strands of yarn held together.
Tapestry needle.

*Worsted weight yarn is a little thicker than DK but can easily be substituted.

The pattern was straightforward and easy to follow. It took shape quickly and was so much fun to make! This dragon was a gift to my niece for her birthday. 😊 I used 7.5 mm cat eyes in my adaptation. Thanks for a great pattern!!

These are great patterns, easy to follow. I've made two of the dragons so far and they are super cute! I follow the pattern exactly as its written and love the result. Lucyravenscar even accounted for the shifting of the joining seam in writing the pattern. Impressive!
