Crochet Dragon #2 – Free Pattern

Hello everyone.  I love dragons, that is clear from the name of this blog. The first softie I designed myself back in 2016 was a Crochet Dragon , and the pattern for that dragon is my most popular post to date. However as much as I love that dragon, last year I decided to play around with the design and came up with this gorgeous new style of dragon.

Pink crochet dragon with grey feet, horns and grey and pink wings.

This crochet dragon has ribbed wings, crouching legs and two sets of horns.  I think the it makes him look a little fiercer but still incredibly cute.
