This pattern was inspired from a fellow crocheter, Kathleen, who left a review on my scraptacular reptile pattern. She did her own twist on the pattern and made the reptiles into dragons! I loved the idea SO much that I asked them if I could turn their idea into an official pattern. She said yes! So I want to thank her again for her creativity 🙂 I used her photos as inspiration to make this dragon pattern! Here’s the photo of her awesome dragons:

These dragons are super duper cute and really fun to make! The head, horns, body, and arms are all made in one continuous piece. The only sewing on in this pattern is sewing the ears and wings to the dragon.

This pattern is perfect for your scrap yarns. You can manipulate the size of the dragons by using a different weight yarn! You can use a blanket yarn to make a large dragon, or a sport weight yarn to make a smaller, keychain sized dragon. Just be sure to use the appropriate hook for the yarn you use!

Let’s get started!

How to make a triple crochet bobble stitch:

The feet are crocheted into the dragon as we’re making it.
To do this, we will create a bobble stitch. The bobble stitch is pretty easy! Here’s a quick overview: We will create 4 triple crochets into the same stitch. Then, we will take our hook out of our current working stitch, insert our hook into the first triple crochet we made, then also insert our hook into the current working loop. We will yarn over and pull through both loops at the same time. Done!

Here’s the tutorial in a bit more detail:
First, yarn over and insert your hook into the stitch.
*Yarn over twice (Pic 2) and insert it your hook into the stitch (Pic 3).

1. 2. 3.

Yarn over (Pic 4) and pull the yarn through the stitch (Pic 5-6).

4. 5. 6.

You will have four loops on your hook (Pic 6). Yarn over (Pic 7) and pull through two loops.

6. 7.

Once again, yarn over and pull through two loops (Pic 8-10).

8. 9. 10.

Again, yarn over and pull through two loops (Pic 11-12). You have just created a triple crochet!*

11. 12.
Repeat the steps in the *stars* until you have created 4 triple crochets (Pic 13)

13.
Now, remove your hook from the current working loop (Pic 14). Reinsert your hook into the first triple crochet we made (Pic 15).

14. 15.

Now, also insert your hook into the current working loop (Pic 16). Yarn over (Pic 17) and pull through both loops on your hook at the same time (Pic 18-19). You’ve completed a bobble stitch!

16. 17. 18. 19.
Remember, even though we put 4 triple crochets into one stitch, we only created one complete stitch. This is because we crocheted all 4 triple crochets together, making 1 stitch. When you meet the triple crochet, only make 1 single crochet where it is.

Horns: (Make 2)

In darker main color

Make the horns first before the body.
Row 1: Ch 4. Sc in the 2nd Ch from the hook. Hdc in the next st, Dc in the last ch. Finish off.

Round 7: Sc in next 2 st, *Inc, Sc in the next st* 4 times, Sc in last 3 st (17)
In the next round we will attach the horns to the body. We will do this by crocheting them on as we crochet the head.
Round 8: Sc in the next 3 st. Line up the horn to the head (Pic 1). The wrong/ugly side will be facing us. Going through BOTH the horn and the head, Sc in the next 3 st (Pic 2-5).
