Crocheted Baby Dragons

Crocheted Baby Dragons

I love crocheting things, but I’ve never made anything more than hats, scarves and blankets…. until now!

When I learned that some of our close friends were going to have a baby, I knew I wanted to make something special for them. I did make them a ripple blanket to fit a stroller, but then I wanted to make them something else.

(null)(null)I also figured out how to make crocheted baby dragons. I found a free pattern online and played with the instructions until I figured out what worked for the yarn and crochet needles that I had at home.

After showing some other friends what I had created, I suddenly had about eight ‘orders’ for baby dragons from friends! They all loved it. I’ve created a total of 4 dragons so far, and there are 4 more to go for people who have friends with young kids or who are expecting.

My sister has a friend on her soccer team that just had a baby, and she loves USA soccer. So, I created a blue and red dragon with a white and black soccer ball!

I just find these dragons so cute! Here are a few more pictures of the finished dragons:(null)

  1. These are adorable! I am a volunteer soccer coach for 7 year old girls and boys. Our team name is the “Dragons”. We are about done with this season, but if we reconvene I would love to order one as our mascot! Very creative! Well done!!

    1. Wonderful that you are a volunteer soccer coach! I grew up playing on a team too. If the team reconvenes and you’d like a mascot, check out Etsy. There are a couple of sellers who make this style of crocheted dragon. You can find them by searching “crochet dragon” in Etsy’s search bar! I just crochet for fun. 🙂

  2. I love the red and blue one! Very cute. I crochet, too, but I’ve reverted back to only making scarves because its easy. I’d love to hang out and crochet with you.

    1. Thanks, Sara! I agree that scarves are easier…. I look forward to doing something simpler again once I’ve finished a few more dragons. Yes, let’s get together sometime!
