This dragon rattle is one of the very first amigurumi toys I ever made. Inspired by a small dragon made by Laura. I made my version a bit larger, added another row of spikes and a rattle inside the body. Over the last two years I have made about a hundred of them.
They are not difficult to crochet, but do take quite a bit of time to assemble. But after a hundred dragons, I have gotten pretty good at it.
About 11 cm (4 1/3") with fingering weight cotton yarn and a 1,75 mm crochet hook.
2. Beginner - suitable for novice crocheters, may require a bit of customization, requires patience and precision when assembling the dragon.
To make your own, you should know how to crochet single cochet stitches (double crochet in the UK), start a piece with an adjustable loop, increase, decrease, finish pieces, join pieces and hide yarn tails.
