One of the cuties whose patterns you can get is this adorable dragon.

Amigurumi is the art of crocheting stuffed yarn animals, which originated in Japan

The little mythical animal is only 20 mm tall and would look adorable used as a keychain or placed on your desk. The only tricky part of it is that you’ll have to make it yourself.

The pattern requires at least an intermediate level of crocheting skill and materials such as embroidery floss, sewing thread, a crochet hook, glass toy eyes, a beading needle, scissors, oil pastels, and a toothpick.
