The 25 Best Dragon Crochet Patterns

Adriana Maronese  - September 21, 2019

Dragons are probably one of the most fascinating mythological creatures that have ever existed. Since ancient Greece, tales about these fantastic monsters are still being told all around the world in books, movies, and TV series.

There are different types of crochet dragons: they can be fierce and spiky or cute and colorful. The way we choose to depict them is entirely up to our imagination!

Dragons are also fun to make and can be a great project for rainy days. Because they normally have different elements - wings, teeth, tail, spikes - we can choose patterns that combine colors and textures in the same project to make it more interesting.

Here are my 25 favorite dragon crochet patterns
