Zodiac Amigurumi Dragon Free Pattern

Share it if you love it!

It’s May, and let’s crochet the zodiac animal of the month with the tiny amigurumi dragon free pattern. The mini crochet dragon is so cute to crochet and won’t take so much time to finish. While it’s not a realistic crochet dragon pattern for advanced crocheters, it’s a perfect tutorial on how to crochet a dragon for beginners.

The free little dragon crochet pattern is inside the Chinese/Vietnamese zodiac animal amigurumi Collection, which contains all easy amigurumi crochet patterns for beginners on the AG blog. How do you crochet a baby Chinese dragon? Just grab your crochet hook and some yarn stash (it doesn’t take so much yarn for this miniature dragon crochet keychain).

DRAGON PEOPLE – WHO ARE THEY?

People born in the Year of the Dragon are healthy, energetic, excitable, short-tempered, and stubborn. They are also honest, sensitive, and brave, and they inspire confidence and trust. Dragon people are the most eccentric of any in the eastern zodiac. They neither borrow money nor make flowery speeches, but they tend to be soft-hearted which sometimes gives others an advantage over them. They are compatible with Rats, Snakes, Monkeys, and Roosters.

Amigurumi dragon is a lovely gift to make for people who are born in May or any the year of Dragon (1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012, 2024).
