Fierce Little Dragon Knitting Pattern

This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download

This pattern is an update of my ‘fierce but friendly really’ dragon pattern. I’ve made a few minor changes, in particular the wings are stiffer now, and I’ve written it out in a longer form that should be easier to follow. If you still want to use the old version of the pattern you can find it here:


  • Approx 35g double knitting weight yarn, of whichever colour or colours you wish to use for your dragon. Small amount of cream/beige yarn to sew claws.
  • Small amount of cream/beige yarn to sew claws.
  • Stuffing.
  • 1 pair 7.5 mm safety eyes or beads of a similar size for eyes (or you can embroider the eyes, so a small amount of yarn to do that).
  • Tapestry needle.

Finished size: approximately 28cm/11” nose to tip of tail, 20cm/8” wingspan.

This pattern has been translated into Spanish by Ana. Here’s the link to her blog.

The pattern has now also been kindly translated into Dutch by Esther (eswijn on Ravelry). You can download this version using the link above.

Especially if you’re new to crochet or making amigurumi, you might like to check out this video tutorial made by Meladora. She takes you all the way through crocheting the dragon and sewing it together, which is really instructive.
