A little bit about me:
I started crocheting about 5 years ago. All the while, I kept staring at Lucy Ravenscar’s Fierce Little Dragon pattern. It intimidated me. I wanted to figure it out, but I didn’t know anything about amigurumi. I didn’t know what a magic ring was! How do you even make crochet 3D??? So, I drooled over it, but kept it on my “maybe one day” list. Luckily, I have a mother who likes to push me. So, about 4 years ago, I showed my mom the pattern and whined that I didn’t know what a magic ring was and it looked hard. My mother pulled up youtube and had me look it up. We watched video after video on different stitches until I felt confident enough to try her pattern. I was so happy I did. My first dragon had loose stitches and is definitely a little floppy. I wasn’t happy with his eyes because well, I didn’t have a yarn needle and its hard to get eye looking stitches with a crochet hook! However, I’m happy with him. I love him and even though I’ve now made more amigurumi than I can count (including 7 more dragons!) I will always have a place for him on my shelf. He will forever be my first.
So, thanks Ms. Ravenscar for inspiring me. Thanks for making me wanna learn how to make dragons and other creatures. Thanks to all the creators I’ve used patterns from and all the creators who put their patterns up for free. I want to use this to showcase some of my own work (and maybe some patterns as well if I ever get up to writing an entire thing instead of just a leg)
That all being said, this is my latest dragon, definitely inspired by the fierce little dragon pattern, even though I didn’t open it at all for this project.
Oh, and do ignore the fur ball in the picture. She didn’t want to move when I was taking it.
