Dragon Mystery Crochet Along



In this crochet along you will be crocheting… yes a DRAGON! This is a new crochet pattern, seen by almost no one! The cute clip-art of the dragon is not the dragon you will be crocheting, he is just a cute little dragon mascot for our MCAL.
The finished size of your dragon will be about 13 inches. Your size will vary depending on the yarn you choose, the crochet hook you choose, and your tension while crocheting. I used worsted weight yarn and a size D hook to get my dragon to 13 inches.
