Crochet Patterns by You

Krystella pieces Krystella

Can you believe that I have been crocheting for 15 years, and I have never made an anigurumi? I know, I can’t believe it either. If you haven’t explored the abilities of CrocetMe, I would suggest browsing through the pattern section. You can find anything from garments to scarves to bags to particularly adorable amigurumis. 

Browsing through the patterns, I came across an adorable Baby Snow Dragon created by Marjorie. One thing I have recently discovered I love about amigurumis is that gauge is not essential. I stumbled across a partial ball of sock yarn shortly after discovering this pattern. The beautiful blue variegation just begged to be used.  Piece by piece my little dragon started to come together. It was a bit like a puzzle, building each piece and finally fitting each piece together.

She’s almost finished. Another thing I’ve discovered about amigurumis is that they develop a history as they are created. My little dragon’s name is Krystella and she is an ice dragon. The variegation in the yarn is the camouflage utilized by many babies. I still have a few pieces to add, but I will be sure to share pictures when she is finished. Best wishes, Toni
