Dinosaurs and Dragons to Knit and Crochet

By Amy Sosbe 2 years ago

If you enjoyed our round up of magical and mythical creature patterns, today we bring to you some of the most monstrous and fantastic creatures. Some fantasy, and some that once roamed the earth!

Dinosaurs and Dragons have become an enduring part of culture around the world and have inspired many stories.

Get inspired to make one of your own fantastic creatures, with our brilliant selection to knit and crochet.

Dragons don't have to be fierce. Look at these adorable babies! We love the way the Sirdar Snuggly Baby Crofter Chunky yarn creates the perfect dragon scales and texture for this crochet dragon toy pattern. One of our most popular chunky yarns, Sirdar Snuggly Baby Crofter Chunky is also beautifully soft.

All baby dragons have to grow up, and these traditional dragons knitted using King Cole Tinsel yarn are the real deal. Knit the whole family, and why not attach a length of yarn to turn them into flying dragons to hang in a child's bedroom.

Meet Gladys, Gilbet, Cecilly and Rex! These fun dragon heads from Stylecraft would make a really great addition to any child’s bedroom or playroom. Choose from a range of colours and effects in Stylecraft DK yarns and make them as unique as their characters.

No dinosaur fan is complete without the right kit. Not strictly a dinosaur or dragon pattern, but we love these jumpers by Erika Knight for little explorers. Being camouflaged, they're essential for serious dinosaur and dragon adventures!

You may have seen this next design in our round up of the ‘best knitting patterns for boys’, but we couldn’t resist posting it again in this line-up. We would also like to add, dinosaurs aren’t just for boys! This is a great pattern for all dinosaur fans.

We love the colours used to knit this dinosaur inspired blanket and Triceratops toy. Knitted in Peter Pan DK yarn, it can be washed easily in the washing machine.


These quirky hand-puppets by King Cole will provide hours of fun. Knit them in different colour combinations to create your own original dragon and dinosaur inspired creatures


Knitted in stocking stitch, these simple Triceratops and T-Rex toys are quick to knit and would make a great present. Known to be historical enemies, it looks like these two have become great pals ready to have hours of fun and adventures.


Travel back to Jurassic times and add another dinosaur friend to the Triceratops and T-Rex gang, with this simple crochet dinosaur! Measuring approximately 15 x 32cm, it's the perfect size for roaming in new territory at home.

Our final featured pattern creature is more familiar, and still roams the earth to this day. Stay snug as a bug in this wildly imaginative crocodile cocoon pod. The snuggle pod pattern can be knitted for a baby, a child and adults too, so even big kids can have fun with it.
