Baby Dragon


Our BB workshop was working hard for the past month. First I started with little tutorial on different variations how to make crocheted eyes for your dolls and toys. When started I though how it would be piece of cake, but then simple crocheted eyes turned out into so many different sub-groups.

I ended up with comic eyes to crochet, eyes made in layers, 3D crocheted eyes, simple black eyes, human eye shape….  At the end realized it will take me a lot of time till finished and shared with you.

As I didn’t want to stay to long, from my blogging, I decided to take a break creating something new.

For a long time we didn’t make crocheted toy, and so far I have never made a dragon (and I love dragons. I love Fantasy world and to me sometimes feels as I am living in one). For that reason I decided to make one dragon. Baby dragon to start with.

Pattern is easy, but is pretty long one with all the photos I added, so instead of writing it all here I have added a .pdf in Free Patterns page and decided to treat you with additional photos of two of my dragons born in my BB shop.

First I made a boy one. It is the green one you can see on the photos, but even If I haven’t mention he was a boy you would notice it straight away.

Girl dragon was the second one I worked on, wile testing the pattern and adjusting it so everyone can make a dragon to keep or share.

They are both so adorable and to be honest thinking on hiding them when my nieces will come over so they don’t take them away from me (joking).

They measure only 13 cm or 5 inches when seated and are as sweet as candies.

Leaving you with several photos of my babies I hope you will enjoy.


Wishing you all wonderful Friday and blessed end of the week.

  2. Hi!
    Your work is amazing and these baby dragons are lovely!
    Thank you so mch for the patterns!

    1. you are welcome Eve

  3. hi Im new to amigurumi (this will be my third project) and Im very very interested in making this dragon but I’ve only ever made amigurumi using the magic circle to start off. your’s starts with a chain of 6… do I slip stitch the two ends together, or do the first round and then crochet from the “bottom” of the chain? to get an oblong shape? sorry if Im just not reading the pattern correctly. thanks for any help

    1. Malisa, once you make the chain, first round you have to stitch around the chain. Use back loops when starting, you will end up with 3 sts in last chain stitch and then simply continue to work on the opposite side loops (of the chain). You will crochet in circle, but around the chain. Hope this makes sense. Let me know if this helped you. If not will think of something else…

      1. thank you 🙂

  4. I have 2 questions about the baby dragon pattern. I tried to make the nostrils and they come out round instead of curving around. And also I am making the legs and ran into a problem. I am going from row 4 to 5 and I don’t understand how when you add extra stitches for the popcorn stitch how you can still come out to the same number of stitches as the previous row. I drew out the pattern and I am coming out with 30 stitches at the end of row 5 and then this will mess up the decrease for row 8. I noticed there was a correction for the arms pattern but I didn’t see any other corrections. I am trying to make this for my niece and any help would be appreciated.

    1. When you make a popcorn stitch, no matter how many stitches you use in making it once you close it you end up with one stitch to count.
      Tie them all together and wrap into one stitch. Will try to find good tutorial…
      Look at this one. I think it will help you understand

  5. I am trying to make this and is the first stuffed animal I am trying. I was wondering when you work the next row do you slip stitch and then work in the next stitch or do you just work into the next stitch? Also when it says inc3 does that mean you would crochet 3 into the same stitch?

    1. Hello Rebeccah,
      Most of my work are done in spiral; meneing no slip stitching at the end to first chain. You simply go and work in rounds. Important is to mark the first stitch each round so you can keep track on which round working on.
      When it comes to inc3, means increase three sequential stitches (or, to make it more clear inc x3 or inc next 3 sts).
      Increase 3 stitches in one stitch I usually write or put info in the brackets.
      For any help you might need while working on the dragon, please feel free to write and ask. You can reach me through e-mail as well.
