Hooked: Toothless from How To Train Your Dragon

Toothless_1

Meet my latest amigurumi – Toothless the (Night Fury) Dragon from “How to Train Your Dragon”!

The pattern is from Sarselgurumi which you can find HERE. I first came across this pattern when I started crocheting, but didn’t attempt it as it seemed too complicated for my skill set at the time. However, attempting it again more recently, I was impressed to find it was a really well designed pattern and am really pleased with the results!

I crocheted Toothless with a dark navy DK yarn and my favourite 2.75mm hook.

I was especially impressed with learning a technique to form Toothless toes. His feet were worked as single pieces – toes included! It would have been so tedious to sew on individual toes!

As I made Toothless, I was careful to document all the different parts and techniques with my camera. I’m excited to say that in my next post I will be putting together a visual step-by-step tutorial for Sarselgurumi’s excellent pattern. So if you’re keen to make a Toothless too (especially with How to Train Your Dragon 2 being released in a few months time!) but need some images to help – stick around! 🙂

  1. Hi love this pattern how many balls of wool did you use to make him because I would like to make 6 one with a normal tail and 5 with a different left side of the tail.

    Thank you in advance

    • I’m sorry this is such a late reply Tonia! I used a ball of yarn I already had at home. I can’t remember exactly how much yarn it required, but I don’t believe it used up more than a ball of yarn.
