Phew!!  Finally, finally I have finished up Spike! I started him back in May (!!) of this year and never got around to writing his pattern because the color changes were so tricky for me.   Remember, I like to make everything up as I go and I really don’t have any good idea of how color changes should formally be written up.  Chalk it up to laziness, I guess. I just want to go! go! go! when I’m crocheting and I don’t have the patience to try to sit down and see how others have written up their patterns!  For a while now, I’ve been getting many inquiries from interested crocheters about when the dragon pattern was coming out so I am so happy to say “Here it is!!”  I will be uploading it to my usual shops by tomorrow at the latest!  Thank you all for being so darn patient and as always, I am so grateful for your interest and kind words of support!

And as you may know from my previous post, I am also doing this because my friend had requested a custom order of a dragon doll for his nephew who happens to be born in the Year of the Dragon.  So here is my contribution towards my Little Muggles “Zodiac Collection”.  I hope you like him!





In my pattern, I’ve also included a little tutorial about how to make color changes with smooth transitions.  This is a MUST when making the belly of Spike.  A lot of you probably already know the technique, but I made my own picture tutorial.  I do intend to add a Tutorial section for my website sometime soon so please check back for it! Until then, have a fantastic day and as usual, Happy Crocheting!!

    I bought this pattern a few days ago and I’m having a really hard time with the belly section! I don’t know what I’m doing wrong but the colored sections aren’t centered at all! I’ve redone it twice now and count like a crazy person to get everything right and it looks the same both times 🙁

    I plan on making this as a gift for my nephew who loves dragons and baby animals (so perfect).
    I will probably add wings though. What’s a dragon without his wings?!

    I have bought this pattern and can’t wait to get started (waiting for my yarn to arrive)!
    May I know what is the size of the buttons used for his nose? It’s not mentioned in the pattern, and would like to order the correct size online :o).
    Thank you!

    Just wondering why it said ” free” crochet pattern and when I get to the next section and it has. Price of $4.99?

  12. Janet Reid says:

    It says this pattern is free on the crochet for free blog spot. Is this correct or not? I would love to make one of my own. Thank you, and have a blessed day.

    I’ve just opened your site with making spike the dragon, can’t find the free download to make this toy. Normally I click on a button to download can’t find the button or am I being thick. Please hope you can help me I would love to make him.

  14. Ann white says:

    In answer to the question that you asked from Deb, where did she see the word “free” pattern for Spike the Dragon it was on Pinterest wed site, that’s where I and I would think a lot of my patterns from.
