I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

A super cute dragon will be a perfect gift both for a girl or a boy of any age. Even boys and girls of 50 would like one as a friend. So, here are two variants of the same patter that make very different dragons all around.

Orbit the Dragon Free Pattern

Orbit is a dragon CAL from last June. While the pattern was stretched over 4 weeks, it’s really easier than that, although it may be a little too ambitious for a complete beginner. This little firestarter is just huggable and adorable and will be a friend forever. The crocheted eyes make him suitable for even the youngest Targaryens. The link to the pattern is below.

Even More Orbit the Dragon

So, here is another variant of the same pattern that has a more blue tinge to the skin and slightly larger ears. You can vary up the colors, sizes of accessories and even the surface texture of the doll.
