Picture of Crochet Dragon - Smaug from The Hobbit

I'm pretty excited about the upcoming movie The Hobbit, but it's still a few months away.  So in the meantime, I crocheted my own Smaug.   He is known as Smaug The Magnificent, Smaug the Golden, the Dragon of Erebor, and Bilbo also calls him Smaug the Tremendous.  Unfortunately, I don't know yet what he will look like in Peter Jackson's movie so I based my crochet Smaug on J.R..R Tolkien's watercolour Conversations with Smaug.

While I was crocheting my dragon, I noticed that he started to look too cute, and Smaug the Chiefest and Greatest of Calamities is not cute.  To make him look more fearsome I added some extreme elements (well extreme as far as crochet goes).  I used red LEDs for the eyes and smoke and sparks rising from his nostrils.

Step 1: What you will need

Picture of What you will need
materials2).JPG
materials3.JPG
  • Yarn: yellow and two shades of red (the yarn for the spikes is weight class 4 and the primary red and yellow yarns are weight class 3 -though I'm guessing about the 3 since it is not listed on the package, it is slightly thinner than the other red)
  • crochet hook (2.5mm)
  • stitch marker
  • fibrefill
  • felt
  • embroidery thread and needle
  • glitter glue
  • cotton ball
For the electronics:
  • LEDs: two red -I bought a bunch of different colour LEDs on eBay
  • LED tealight - you can find these at a dollar store
  • needle nose pliers
  • conductive thread - I bought mine online at Soft Circuit, you can also get it at Spark Fun,  Aniomagic, or if you live in Canada there is this place.
  • optical fibres  - I found a dollar store toy that had optical fibre ( you can also find some on eBay)

Step 2: Head and Ears

Picture of Head and Ears
head2.JPG
head3.JPG
head4.JPG
ears.JPG
I jotted down the pattern for my dragon as best as I could, I did this free hand so there was a bit of trial and error, stitching and unraveling as I went along.  I apologize, I don't have a lot of experience making my own patterns so there may be easier ways of making (and explaining) this.

We will be crocheting in spirals so use a stitch marker to mark the rounds.  For all body parts leave a long strand after you tie (fasten) off for stitching the pieces together.

Here is the nomenclature that I used (these are US stitches see link for conversion to UK):

            Rnd         round
            ch(s)       chain stitch(s)
            sc            single crochet
            dc            double crochet
            hdc          half double crochet
            tc              triple crochet
            sl st         slip stitch
            st             stitch
            sc2tog    decrease by crocheting 2 stitches together

Head
In the primary red coloured yarn crochet the head.

Rnd1: Ch 2, work 6 sc in first chain from hook (6st)
Rnd2: 2sc in each (12st)
Rnd3: 2sc in first and 6th, sc in rest (14st)
Rnd4: 2sc in first and 7th, sc in rest (16st)
Rnd5-10: Sc in each (16st)
Rnd11: 2sc in first 8, sc in rest (24)
Rnd12-14: Sc in each (24st)
Rnd15: Sc in next 6, skip next, sc next two, skip next, sc next two, skip next, sc in rest (21st)
Rnd16: Sc in next 4, skip next, sc next two, skip next, sc next two, skip next, sc in rest (18st)
Rnd17: Sc in each (18st)
Rnd18: Either sc2tog in first and 9, sc in rest (16st) if you don't plan to put any electronics into the head or Sc in each (18st) -16st looks better when you connect the head to the torso but it is too narrow to stuff the electronic components into the head.


Ears
In the primary red coloured yarn crochet the ears (make two).

Rnd1: Ch4
Rnd2: Sc in first 3, turn, ch1
Rnd3: Sc in first 2, 2sc in next, sc in rest, turn, ch 1
Rnd4: Sc in first, sc2tog next, sc next, turn,
Rnd5: Sc 2, tie off

If you are wondering the nostrils appear in step 9.

Step 3: Torso

Picture of Torso
torso2.JPG
torso3.JPG
torso4.JPG
torso5.JPG
Use the primary red colour(R) and yellow(Y) for the torso.  The first round begins the neck (where you attach the head), the last round is where you attach the tail.  The body may be a bit confusing since you will be using two colours, as you increase and decrease the stitch marker for each round begins to shift.

Rnd1: Ch 17 sl st into first (16st)
Rnd2-5: Sc in each ch (16st)
Rnd6: Sc 7(R), 1 sc(Y), 8 sc (R) (16st)
Rnd7: Sc 7(R), 1 sc(Y), 8 sc (R) (16st)
Rnd8: Sc 7(R), 1 sc(Y), 2sc in next(Y), 7 sc (R) (17st)
Rnd9: Sc 6(R), 2sc in next(R), 4 sc(Y), 6 sc (R) (18st)
Rnd10: Sc 8(R), 3 sc(Y), 2sc in next(Y), 6 sc (R) (19st)
Rnd11: Sc 7(R), 2sc in next(R), 6 sc(Y), 5 sc (R) (20st)
Rnd12: Sc 9(R), 5 sc(Y), 2sc in next(Y), 5 sc (R) (21st)
Rnd13: 2sc in 5th red, red sc in rest of red, 2sc in 4th yellow, rest yellow sc in yellow sc,
             2sc in 3rd red, rest  red sc in red sc (24st)
Rnd14: 2sc in 5th red, red sc in rest of red, 2sc in 4th yellow, rest yellow sc in yellow sc,
             2sc in 3rd red, rest  red sc in red sc (28st)
Rnd15: 2sc in 6th red, red sc in rest of red, 2sc in 3rd and 7th yellow, rest yellow sc in yellow sc,
             2sc in4th red, rest  red sc in red sc (32st)
Rnd16-22: Red sc in red sc, yellow sc in yellow sc (32st)
Rnd23: Sc2tog first, rest red sc in red sc, yellow sc in yellow sc (31st)
Rnd24: Sc2tog in yellow, rest red sc in red sc, yellow sc in yellow sc (30st)
Rnd25: Sc2tog first, rest red sc in red sc, yellow sc in yellow sc (29st)
Rnd26: Sc2tog in yellow, rest red sc in red sc, yellow sc in yellow sc (28st)
Rnd27: Sc2tog first, rest red sc in red sc, yellow sc in yellow sc (27st)
Rnd28: Sc2tog in yellow, rest red sc in red sc, yellow sc in yellow sc (26st)
Rnd29: Sc2tog first, rest red sc in red sc, yellow sc in yellow sc (25st)
Rnd30: Sc2tog in yellow, rest red sc in red sc, yellow sc in yellow sc (24st)
Rnd31: One sc2tog in red, one sc2tog in yellow, rest red sc in red sc, yellow sc in yellow sc (22st)
Rnd32: One sc2tog in red, one sc2tog in yellow, rest red sc in red sc, yellow sc in yellow sc (20st)
Rnd33: One sc2tog in red, one sc2tog in yellow, rest red sc in red sc, yellow sc in yellow sc (18st)
Rnd34: Red sc in red sc, yellow sc in yellow sc (18st)
Rnd35: Red sc in all sc, tie off yellow (18st)
Rnd36: Sc2tog first, rest sc -all red, tie off (16st)

Step 4: Tail

Picture of Tail
tail2.JPG
tail.JPG
You can continue straight from the torso to the tail (Rnd1 would just be sc in each (16st)) , this will look better (more seamless).  My concern was that it would be hard to get stuffing down to the end of the tail. If you plan to make them separate just check that the tail opening is as wide as that on the torso before you proceed much further.

With the primary red yarn crochet the tail:

Rnd1: Ch 17 sl st into first (16st)
Rnd2: Sc in each ch (16st)
Rnd3-4: Sc in each sc (16st)
Rnd5: Sc2tog in first sc, sc in rest around (15st)
Rnd6-8: Sc in each sc (15st)
Rnd9: Sc2tog in first sc, sc in rest around (14st)
Rnd10-12: Sc in each sc (14st)
Rnd13: Sc2tog in first sc, sc in rest around (13st)
Rnd14-15: Sc in each sc (13st)
Rnd16: Sc2tog in first sc, sc in rest around (12st)
Rnd17-18: Sc in each sc (12st)
Rnd19: Sc2tog in first sc, sc in rest around (11st)
Rnd20-21: Sc in each sc (11st)
Rnd22: Sc2tog in first and 5th sc, sc in rest around (9st)
Rnd23-24: Sc in each sc (9st)
Rnd25: Sc2tog in first and 4th sc, sc in rest around (7st)
Rnd26-27: Sc in each sc (7st)
Rnd28: Sc2tog in first sc, sc in rest around (6st)
Rnd29: Sc2tog in first sc, sc in rest around (5st)
Rnd30: Sc2tog in first sc, sc in rest around (4st)
Rnd31: Sc2tog in first sc, sc in rest around (3st)
Rnd32: Sc2tog in first sc, sc in rest around (2st)
Rnd33-38: Sc in each sc (2st)
Rnd39: Sc2tog in first sc (1st)
Rnd40-52: ch1
Tie off
For the fork at the end of the tail:
Ch 4 sl st in 4th chain from end on the tail then ch 4 tie off.


Step 5: Legs

Picture of Legs
frontleg2.JPG
backleg2.JPG
backleg3.JPG
backleg4.JPG
With the primary red colour make the front and back legs (make two of each)

Front legs

Rnd 1: Ch 2, work 6sc in first chain from hook
Rnd 2-5: Sc in each st around. (6st)
Rnd 6: 2sc in first, (sc2tog)x2, 2sc in next st (6st).
Rnd 7: 2sc in first, (sc2tog)x2, 2sc in next st (6st).
Rnd 8: 2sc in first, (sc2tog)x2, 2sc in next st (6st).
Rnd 9: 2sc in next st, (sc2tog)x2, 2 sc in next st (6st).
Rnd 10: 2sc in next st, sc in each of next 4 sts, 2 sc in next st (8 st)
Rnd 11: 2sc in next st, sc in each of next 6 sts, 2 sc in next st, tie off (10st)

Back Legs

Rnd 1: Ch 2, work 10sc in first chain from hook
Rnd 2-3: Sc in each st around (10st)
Rnd4: 2sc in first two sts, sc in next, sc2tog x2, sc in next, 2sc in next two (12st)
Rnd5: 2sc in next st, sc in next three, sc2tog x2, sc in next three, 2sc (12st)
Rnd6: 2sc in next st, sc in next three, sc2tog x2, sc in next three, 2sc (12st)
Rnd7: Sc in first 5, sc2tog, sc in next 5 (11st)
Rnd8: Sc in first 5, sc2tog, sc in next 4 (10st)
Rnd9: Sc2tog in first, sc in next two, Sc2tog in next, sc in next two (8st)
Rnd10: Sc2tog in remaining, tie off

Step 6: Wings

Picture of Wings
wing2.JPG
wing3.JPG
wing4.JPG

With the primary red colour crochet the wings(make 2).

Rnd1: Ch 30
Rnd2: Sc in each chain (skip the last) turn and ch1 (29st)
Rnd3: Sc in each sc, turn (28st)
Rnd4: Sc in each sc (skip the last) turn and ch1 (27st)
Rnd5: Sc in each sc, dc in last sc, turn (26st)
Rnd6: Sl st in first two sc, sc in each sc remaining, turn(23st)
Rnd7: Sc in each sc, turn ( 21st)
Rnd8: Sc in each sc, turn and ch1 ( 20st)
Rnd9: Sc in each chain, dc in last sc, turn (20st)
Rnd10: Sl st in first two sc, sc in each sc remaining, turn( 18st)
Rnd11: Sl st in first three sc, sc in each sc remaining, turn(15st)
Rnd12: Sl st in first four sc, sc in each sc, turn (10st)
Rnd13: Sc in each sc, turn (8st)
Rnd14: Sc in each sc ( 6st)
Rnd 15: Sl st in first three, dc, sl st 3, tie off(6st)

Step 7: Spikes

Picture of Spikes
spike2.JPG
spikes3.JPG
spikes4.JPG
spikes5.JPG
spikes6.JPG
I used a lighter red colour for the spikes. Press flat the torso and tail and crochet into the holes running along the tops.  I added the spikes before I assembled the pieces, it is probably better to connect the torso and tail then put the spikes on so that there connection between them is more seamless.

Starting on the neck of the torso:

Sc, sc, (sc, hdc, sc in one hole), sc , sc, (sc, hdc, sc in one hole), *sc, (hdc, dc, hdc in one hole), sc, repeat from * three times, **hdc, (dc, tc, dc in one hole), hdc, repeat from ** four times, #sc, (hdc, dc, hdc in one hole), sc, repeat from # two times. Tie off or if tail is already attached continue on below.

Starting from the widest part of the tail:

*Sc, (hdc, dc, hdc in one hole), sc, repeat from *six times, **sc, (sc, hdc, sc in one hole), sc, repeat from ** three times, sc, sc, (sc, hdc, sc in one hole), sc, sc, sc until row 32 of tail, then sl st until the end.


Step 8: Assembly

Picture of Assembly
assembly2.JPG
assembly3).JPG
Stuff all of the body parts with fiberfill (except for the head).  With a whip stitch, sew all of the pieces together,  leaving the head off.  Make sure the spikes on the tail torso line up.  For the wings I sewed from underneath so that they fold over.  When you sew the ears on pinch them a little at the base.

Step 9: Details

Picture of Details
mouth1.JPG
mouth2.JPG
glitter.JPG
glitter1.JPG
glitter2.JPG
Nostrils
For the nostrils I single crochet 2 small half circles along the top front of the head with the primary red colour. I crocheted directly into the crochet holes on the head.
Starting at the Rnd1 hole of the head: make one sc, sc into the hole directly above in Rnd2, sc in same row one to the right, sl st one hole to the right, down one row .  Repeat to the left.
 
Eyes
The LEDs did not look that great on there own for eyes so I glued some black felt around them.

Mouth
I stitched a mouth with brown embroidery thread and added two teeth on both sides of the face.

Belly
Smaug's belly is covered in gems so I covered it with glitter glue.  Remember to leave the hollow of his left breast free. This is the weak spot in his armor that Bilbo discovered which ultimately led to his demise (oops -spoilers).

Step 10: LEDs

Picture of LEDs
leds2.JPG
leds3.JPG
led4.JPG
led5.JPG
led6.JPG
With needle nose pliers I turned the legs of the two red LEDs into loops.  Stick the LEDs through crochet holes on either side of the face (from the inside out).  Check the best positioning for the eyes.  Turn the head inside out and stitch together the positive poles of the LEDs with conductive thread and run the thread out the neck.  Do the same connecting the negative poles, don't let the threads cross.  I ran the stitches through the crochet loops so that the thread does not show through. Test it with battery to make sure it works.

Step 11: Electronics

Picture of Electronics
electronics2.JPG
electronics3.JPG
I  used the flickering orange LED of the tealight for the sparks and conveyed it by optical fibres to the nostrils.  To simplify things, I connected the LEDs for the eyes in parallel to the circuit board of the tealight since it has it's own battery pack and on/off switch.  To do this: first remove the cover from the tea light.  Break off the excess plastic (so that it can fit into the dragon head/neck).  Connect the two thread from the LEDs to the circuit board, be careful where you attach it, on some spots the eyes will flicker as well..

Step 12: Smoke

Picture of Smoke
smoke2.JPG
smoke3.JPG
dark.JPG
I used 10 strands of optical fibre and divided it in two.  I stuffed each bundle through a crochet hole in each nostril into the head.  I then taped the two bundles together on the end inside the head and then taped it to the flickering orange LED.  I then bent the fibres up at the nostrils (be careful here they can snap off).  I then trimmed the ends to lengths varying from 0.5cm to 3cm.  I then added some bits of cotton ball so that it looks like smoke. 

Fill the inside of the head with a bit of fiberfill, try not to disturb the circuit and sew the head onto the neck, leaving an opening underneath so that you can reach the on/off switch.

This is a really awesome pattern!! I made this for my mom, a huge LoTR-fan, and she loved it! I didn't do the LED lights or the cotton, but he still turned out pretty well!

(In the second and third pics: Smaug is guarding his gold-en retriever )

Hi!!! Awesome design. I linked your page in my blog entrie -

http://www.evilkrafts.blogspot.com.ar/2015/01/the-mother-of-dragons.html - Also, I wonder If I can translate your pattern to spanish? I would put it on my site with links to you original pattern. As you may noticce, I did different wings, as I wanted it to look more like a Game of Thrones dragon. Hope you like it!!! Plese let me know about the translation.

It looks great with the black wings! Sure it is okay to translate into Spanish as long as there is a link back to here. Thanks!

Thank you for making this, and making it free! I'm planning on tweaking it a little, making the body hollow, so I can stuff it full of candy and make it a pooping (duck) dragon for my husband for V-day. Partially done with the head now...

ChrysN (author)  CrochetsbyAmanda1 year ago

Sounds great, feel free to post an image when you are done!

I decided to make this all in one color, and made the wings a little different, but here it is! The head, feet and tail are stuffed with pillow stuffing, but I left the body empty, and filled it with Starburst... my hubby's favorite. I also gave the dragon a name, and story on a piece of paper with coffee stains and burned edges. I also made the eyes out of Sculpty.

140211_0001.jpg140211_0002.jpg

The Starburst is such a cute idea!! Who knew that a dragon's droppings could be so fruity and delicious? ;)

Thanks. I made one for my friend too, and he likes Boston Baked Beans, which looked more like poo than the Starbursts did...

ChrysN (author)  CrochetsbyAmanda1 year ago

I love it! I like the Sculpty eyes.

My husband draws dragons, so I wanted it to look similar to his designs...

For the wings, in round 11-12, how does the stitch count drop from 15 to 10? I realize that there are 3 sl sts near here, but those bring the count down to 15 from the previous row's 18. (Not from 15 to 12 or something.)

One is used up because there is no ch1 when turning, but where did the other 4 go?

ChrysN (author)  PerfectlyNormalBeast1 year ago

I fixed the mistake in Row 12, there should be 4 sl sts at the beginning of the row.

MaDaYoMaJe1 year ago

I LOVE IT! I'm a Hobbit lover to, and I wanted to make Smaug but I didn't know how, now I do. THANKS!

Hi,
I'm new to crocheting, and I'm wondering how exactly you work the color change on the torso. On my torso, every round starts one stitch over from the round before (pictured on the left). So by the time I finish the red and reach the yellow belly, my last red stitch overlaps with the first yellow from the previous row. Yours doesn't look nearly as shifted over as mine does, if at all.

At first I was thinking of joined rounds, but it specifically says it's worked in spirals. I even tried changing colors during the last yarn-over of the preceding red stitch (pictured on the right), but this only affects the stitch pattern on the red/yellow border and not whether the border is slanted.

2014-06-19 18.07.13.jpg
ChrysN (author)  PerfectlyNormalBeast1 year ago

I would just look at the total number of stitches and the number of red and yellow stitches in each round. For example, starting in rnd 6 the 8th stitch is yellow the rest is red and work your way from there by eye, the next rnd will be the same, the following rnd will have 3 yellow (one additional yellow on either side of the yellow in the previous rnd). This is how I made it and then latter went back to try and figure out and document what I did -which is probably why people are having trouble with my instructions. If you are finding this too frustrating I have seen people do the whole abdomen in red and stitch on yellow thread later, also I saw someone do it all in red and stitch coloured beads onto the belly which looked really cool.

Thanks!
As a knitter, I may have simply been thinking about crochet rounds the
wrong way. Every crochet stitch worked into a stitch directly below the
hook actually creates the new stitch to the left of the one below. But
in knitting, there is no horizontal shift; a new stitch worked above an
old one stays above it.

In this case, I kept wanting to move my stitch marker "up" directly into
the new stitch, but that was really both up and left. Over many rows,
the marker migrates from the orange one's position to the blue's with
this mistake. Counting backwards from the yellow (9 sts in rnd 12, 8 sts in rnd 11, etc), I realized that a marker can consistently stay where this orange one is.

Is there any way you can please make a step by step tutorial on YouTube?
playadel2 years ago
Thank you so much for this pattern. It is turning out nicely. I have a question about the Conductive Thread. I looked on the sites you recommended and there are so many different kinds. Can you be more specific as to what kind of thread and how much I need? Thank you.
ChrysN (author)  playadel2 years ago
I bought the one from the Soft Circuit site. All of the ones listed should work about the same. Soft Circuit has a nice sample size for $4.50 which is all that you would need for this project. You wouldn't need more than a foot of thread here.
craftygater2 years ago
I am having trouble downloading the PDF. Every time I click on download it opens the log in box. I fill out and click log in and it will not log me in. I logged in thru facebook and every time I click on download the log in box comes back up. I haven't had any problems like this on any other sites. Is there a glitch in your log in box or download box? My daughter sent me your site to make Smaug for my 2 yr old grandson. He is really into dragons.

ChrysN, I will try that, it sounds like it makes sense. Thanks
playadel3 years ago
Hi again, Thank you for your patience, On the torso did you carry both red and yellow together hiding one behind the other? Each color seems to show thru the other color a little. I've been on youtube re changing colors. Still a little confused. Thanks
ChrysN (author)  playadel3 years ago
Hi, I actually didn't carry the two yarns together, I just stitched with red, then dropped it, then started with yellow, then switched again to red as the pattern required. I didn't tie off and cut the thread when I stitched with the other colour, the red and yellow threads just spanned across.

Does that make sense, I guess that is not the common way of crocheting with 2 colours by carrying them along. I tried to find instructions demonstrating this, but only found this link :http://www.ehow.com/how_6179119_change-colors-within-round-amigurumi.html under
Dropping First Color Yarn to Pick Up Later, steps 7-9

I have another question, I'm doing the torso and on round 13 it ends with 24sc which comes out find. Then I do the 14th round , if I'm reading it right there are three increases but the outcome is supose to be 28sc. Not. I't comes out to 27sc. How do I adjust this because the rest of the pattern seems to work out fine. Thank you so much. My 7yr grandson is going to love this. Being a boy though I hope he does'nt want to take it apart to see how it works. You are very talented and I'm glad you won 1st prize. Thanks again.












ChrysN (author)  playadel3 years ago
It looks like both row 14 and row 15 seem off, with only 3 increases but the stitch count going up by for. I can't find my original note, so I either typed it out wrong or didn't record it properly, sorry about that. I remember having trouble in that part.

To solve the problem, in row 14: there should be a second increase in the yellow portion, you can spread it out so that the first increase is in the beginning of the yellow part and the second increase is in the last stitch of the yellow part.

In row 15, when I look closely at my dragon there only appears to be one increase in the yellow portion so the additional increase must have occurred in the red portion after the yellow. Again you can spread the two increases in that section out a bit.

I hope that helps.

Between row 13 and 15 happens to be where I placed the legs, so if there were any inconsistencies they are covered by the legs.

I hope your grandson enjoys it!

is there any way the crochet hook could be a size or 2 bigger than stated?
ChrysN (author)  piratekat3 years ago
That is fine, it will just turn out slightly larger. You may also see a bit of the stuffing through the holes, but it probably won't be too bad.

Very nice! Even before I read the title, I thought "it's Smaug!"

PS: Did you already get your camera? I'm owner of a Canon G9 and totally fan of these compact cameras. Can't wait to hear about the Olympus E-P2!
ChrysN (author)  laxap3 years ago
They've just sent it in the mail, so I'm really looking forward to getting. I've been using a old Sony point and shot (it has glue and other stuff on it). Hopefully you'll see an improvement in future instructable photos..

I am excited about the release of the Hobbit and I love this pattern!!!

I completed the head, body, tail, but I have been struggling with the legs.
Front legs Row 6. I cannot figure out how to get to 5s. First stitch get 2 stitches, then reduce (2nd & 3rd sts), then add (4th stitch). What happens to the 5th and 6th stitches? I have the same question for the back legs round 4.

I am new to crocheting. If anyone can please help, I will be grealty appreciative.
