Materials Needed:

  1. Crochet yarn in desired colors (body, wings, eyes, etc.).
  2. Crochet hook appropriate for the yarn thickness.
  3. Fiberfill stuffing.
  4. Yarn needle.
  5. Safety eyes or embroidery floss for eyes (if desired).
  6. Scissors.

Pattern Steps:

  1. Body: Start by crocheting the body of the pocket dragon. You’ll typically begin with a magic ring and work in continuous rounds to create the dragon’s cylindrical body. Gradually increase stitches in the first few rounds, then work even until the body is the desired length. Stuff the body with fiberfill as you go, making sure it’s firm but not overfilled.
  2. Head: Crochet the dragon’s head by either continuing directly from the body or by creating a separate piece and then attaching it. Create the head shape and add any desired facial features. You can use safety eyes or crochet embroidered eyes using a contrasting color of yarn. Embroider a nose and mouth using yarn or embroidery floss.
  3. Wings: Crochet two identical wings in the wing color of your choice. You can create simple, stylized wings by working a few rows of stitches and then sewing them onto the sides of the dragon’s body.
  4. Tail: Crochet the tail of the dragon, usually starting from the rear end of the body. You can create a curled tail by gradually decreasing stitches in each round until the desired length is achieved.
  5. Assembly: Attach the head, wings, and tail to the body using a yarn needle. Make sure to securely sew all parts in place.
  6. Details: Add any additional details you’d like, such as horns, spikes, or decorative stitches on the body.
  7. Finishing Touches: Weave in any loose yarn ends using a yarn needle, ensuring that all parts are securely fastened. Trim any excess yarn.
