The idea for this ami' came to me in a blur. I was browsing for reference pictures for the Espeon I recently made and happened upon a really cute Umbreon that completely inspired me. I have always wanted to make a dragon, but I was intimated by the sheer complexity of them. Here is my best shot.

Step 1: Needed Materials, Stitches Explination, and Other Notes

Materials:

  • worsted weight green yarn (I used impeccable in fern)
  • fiberfill
  • hot glue gun
  • hot glue
  • yarn needle
  • black felt
  • white felt
  • needle
  • thread in matching colors to the felt
  • sewing pins

Stitches Used and Their Abbreviations:

  • magic ring (mr)
  • single crochet (sc)
  • increase (inc)
  • decrease (inc)
  • double crochet (dc)
  • chain (ch)

Other Notes:

  • If you use hot glue, you do not need the yarn needle, needle, and thread. Vice versa for if you prefer to use needle and thread. Some of the steps are easier with one or the other and were indicated as such, so if you want to use both, that is a rough guide. Much of it boils down to what you prefer to use.
  • This 'ami is slightly difficult.
  • It would be really cute made in different colors, if you do make it in a different color, I would love to see photos.
  • Anything in braces is a long stream of my personal commentary. Feel free to skip over them.

Its ok :) I love this Dragon. I have everything ready to go so after I finish the body I can put together. My niece is going to love it too. Thank you so much for getting back to me. I will check back in a day or two.

on the body what am I supposed to do after round 15

Aaaa, I am so sorry, I must have accidentally deleted some of the text after typing it and didnt notice. Give me another day or two and I will figure out the pattern again by looking at my dragon. I am so sorry for taking this so long to reply to this bit, I havent been on for a few days.

This is REALLY good. I would buy this at a store! I'm going to put this in momo's shoutout Sunday

I am glad you like him. I am planning to start out up an Etsy where I can sell these guys and others that I have made. And thank you.

He is so adorable! I just love the eyes! I see you have a picture of Toothless and like dragons. Do you think you will crochet a Toothless?

I am glad you like him. I have about half of one made from someone's pattern (http://sarselgurumi.blogspot.com/2011/05/toothless-amigurumi-pattern.html), and I must say, it is turning out quite well. I doubt I will design one for myself, as I have found such a good pattern. but I have been considering making the other dragons from the movie in the same style.
