Dragonfly Ornament Pattern
Posted November 10, 2014on:
I have been very busy making ornaments for the holidays season, Santas, snowmen, angels, penguins, elves etc… My house is filled with Christmas decorations and we are not even half way through November. One of the ornaments I made is a little dragonfly, a really cute little amigurumi that you can hang on your tree during the holidays season, or use as any kind of decoration.
I made mine beige and brown, but you can use any color you like. The size of the dragonfly is about 6 inch long, with a 2.75mm hook.
– Medium/4 worsted yarn, brown and beige
– 2.75mm crochet hook
– Goggly eyes
– Fiberfill for stuffing
– yarn needle
– Glue gun, or fabric glue
– Embroidery thread, white
Rnd = round
sc = single crochet
inc = increase
ch = chain
hdc = half double crochet
dc = double crochet
st = stitch
With beige yarn, make a magic ring
Rnd 1: 5 sc in center of the ring (5)
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each st around (10)
RNd 3: [1 sc, inc] 5 times (15)
Rnd 4 to 5: sc in each st around (15)
Rnd 6: [1 sc, dec] 5 times (10)
Rnd 7: [3 sc, dec] 2 times (8)
Rnd 8: [3 sc, inc] 2 times (10)
Rnd 9: [1 sc, inc] 5 times (15)
– Start stuffing, and continue along the way
Rnd 10 to 12: sc in each st around (15)
Rnd 13: [5 sc, dec] 2 times, 1 sc (13)
Rnd 14: [4 sc, dec] 2 times, 1 sc (11)
Rnd 15: [3 sc, dec] 2 times, 1 sc (9)
Rnd 16 to 25: sc in each st around (9)
Rnd 26: 7 sc, dec (8)
Rnd 27: 6 sc, dec (7)
Rnd 28: 5 sc, dec (6)
Rnd 29: dec 3 times (3)
Fasten off, and weave in the loose end in the last stitches of the tail.
Wings (make 4):
With brown yarn, 17 in ch.
Rnd 1: 2 sc, 2 hdc, 11 dc, 4 dc in last st, turn and continue on the other side of the chain, 11 dc, 2 hdc, 2 sc.
Fasten off, and weave in the loose ends.
– Glue the goggly eyes on the head, and the wings (2 on each side of the body)
– Cut a piece of embroidery thread, insert in the stitches on top of the dragonfly, and make a secure double knot. Move your thread until the knot is hidden inside the body.
I hope you enjoy this pattern, and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask me.
