How to Crochet your Dragon

So, I just loved the movie How to Train Your Dragon. I loved it so much, I had to see it twice. As soon as I saw it, though, I thought two things: 1) Toothless the dragon looks and acts EXACTLY like my cat, Boo. E.x.a.c.t.l.y. 2) I must crochet a Toothless.

I have actually started to do this, but it’s going to be a long process. I’m really particular about how it looks so it seems like for every few rows I crochet, I rip about twice as many out again. Maybe I’ll post my progress, although right now it doesn’t look like much of anything.

As inspiration, here are some amazing dragons that I found on the interwebs:

My absolute drool-over-it favourite from Angry Angel. (She also sells the pattern at her Etsy shop. Squee!)

On the cutesy side of things… Here is a sweet little pink dragon from Earless Owl on Flickr.

Next up is a cuddly looking green dragon with some nice, yellow scales. This is done by Pii Chii on Flickr. (I love the nostrils!)

And finally, a realistic looking fiery red dragon by The Itsy Bitsy Spider who sells this pattern at her Etsy shop.

  1. You found some great patterns! I tried to crochet one dragon but unfortunately the pattern was very unclear and I gave up and made an alligator instead since it was a rush job for a birthday gift.
