Dragon Doll Crochet Pattern

Dragon Doll Pattern

il_570xN.445426860_hz1q

*I use a size K hook unless otherwise stated and Red Heart Super Savor Yarn. I kind of went weird trying to describe which colors to use, but you can ignore my color change suggestions and it’s pretty easy to assume when you switch to the color you want and where to do that, haha!

*I sometimes want to make smaller versions of my doll patterns, and I use an H hook instead of the K hook, and that seems to work out fine for me as well. This dragon is about 15 inches tall when using a K hook when you stand him on his feet, not counting the height of the horns.

Body:

Rnd 1: With color A, Ch 3, dc 8 in 3rd chain from hook, jn in first dc with sl st. (8 dc not including first ch-3)

Rnd 2: Ch 2. Working in back loops only, 2 dc in same st, 2 dc in each st around. Jn with sl st in first dc. (16 dc not including first ch-2) Working in the back or front loops when specified will help give the dragon it’s scaly appearance.

Rnd 3: Ch 2. Working in back loops only, dc in same st, 2 dc in next st, (dc in next st, 2 dc in next st) around. Jn with sl st in first dc. (24 dc not including first ch-2)

Rnd 4: Ch 2. Working in back loops only, dc in same st and next st, 2 dc in next st, (dc, dc, 2dc), around. Jn with sl st in first dc. (32 dc not including first ch-2)

Rnd 5: Ch 2. Working in back loops only, dc in same st and around. Jn with sl st in first dc. (32 dc not including first ch-2)

Rnd 6: Ch 2. Working in back loops, dc in same st and in next 10 st, dc in the front loop only of the next one st. Do not fasten off, but switch to color B. With color B and working in the back loops, dc in the next 8 st, do not fasten off. With a seperate end of the yarn of color A, dc the front loop of next st, and then dc in the back loops on the last 11 st. Jn wih a sl st. (32 dc not icluding first ch-2.)

Rnd 7: Ch 2, turn and work in opposite direction now. Working in front loops, (because the work is now facing the opposit direction with the right side away from you), dc in same st and in next 10 st, dc in the back loop of next st. Do not fasten off, but pick up color B where you left it and with color B dc in the front loops of the next 8 st, do not fasten off, but pick up the very first strand of color A where you left it, and use that to dc in the back loop of next st and in the front loops of the last 11 st. Jn with sl st in first dc. (32 dc not including first ch-2)

Rnd 8: Ch 2, turn and work in opposite direction. (Right side will be facing you once again now.) Working in back loops, dc in same st, dec, dc in next 4st, dec, dc in next 3 st, dc in the front loop of next st. Switch to color B. Working in back loops, dc in next 2 st, dec, dc, dec, dc. Switch to color A. Dc in the front loop of next st. Then working in back loops only, dc in next 2 st, dec, dc in next 4 st, dec, dc in last st, jn with a sl st in first dc.

Rnd 9: Ch 2, turn and work in opposite direction. Working in front loops, dc in same st, dec, dc, dec, dc, dec, then dc in the back loop of the next st. Switch to color B. Working in front loops, dc, dec, dec, dc. Switch to color A. Dc in the back loop of next st, then in the front loops, dec, dc, dec, dc, dec, dec. Jn with sl st in first dc.

Rnd 10: You can now fasten off the other rows as you go and use the color A strand you have at the end of this row to finish off the body. Ch 2, turn and work in the opposite direction so that the right side is facing you. In back loops only, dc in same st and in the next 6 st, dc in the front loop of the next st. (Fasten off and change to color B.) Working in back loops, dc in the next 4 st. (Fasten off and change to color A for the last time.) Dc in the front loop of next st and in the back loops of the last 7 st. Jn with a sl st in first dc. (20 dc not counting first ch-2)

Jn with sl st in first dc.

Rnd 4: Ch 2. Working in back loops, dc in same st and in the next 4 st. Dc in both loops of the next st like normal. To close the nostril and stretch to the next dc, you will (yarn over, insert hook into the ch-2 of the previous row and also insert it into the top of the next dc, then yarn over, pull through first loop and ch 2, yarn over, pull through 2 loops, yarn over, pull through last 2 loops.) There should now be three stitches between the nostrils. Dec once and dc in the third. To close next notstril repeat inside the previous parenthesis.

Rnd 11: Ch 2. Working in back loops only, dc dec around beginning with the same st as first ch-2. As in, you’ll be putting the first half of the first dc dec in the same st as the first ch-2. Jn with a sl st in first dc. (8 dc not including first ch-2 and counting the dc decreases as one dc.)

Stuff head and close the sphere by slip stitching across the small opening a few times. Fasten off leaving a tail long enough to sew head to body.
