Mini Altaria Pattern

Materials:

  • Acrylic Yarn (i.e.: Red Heart)
    • Light blue yarn

Main Body

  • Using Bernat Pipsqueak white yarn…
  1. SC 8 in MC (8) 
  2. INC * (16)
  3. SC 1, INC * (24)
  4. SC 2, INC * (32)
  5. SC * (32)
  6. SC * (32)
  7. SC * (32)
  8. SC 2, DEC * (24)
  9. SC 1, DEC * (16)
  10. DEC * (8)
  • Finish off, leave a short tail to weave in
  • Stuff the body lightly so it has some room to “squish”

Head:

  • Using light blue yarn…
  1. SC 8 in MC (8)
  2. INC * (16)
  3. SC 3, INC * (20)
  4. SC * (20)
  5. SC * (20)
  6. SC * (20)
  7. SC * (20)
  • Finish off, leaving a long tail for sewing
  • Add the 8mm eyes between Round 4 & Round 5, about 4-5 stitches apart
  • Stuff the head

Beak

  • Using white yarn…
  1. SC 4 in MC (4)
  2. SC * (4)
  • Finish off and leave a long tail for sewing

Antennas (x2)

  • Using light blue yarn…
  1. CH 7
  • Finish off and leave a long tail for sewing
  • Weave the tail to the starting side so that both the end tail and beginning tail are on the same side

Assembly:

Now it’s time to assemble all the pieces together!

  • Cut out two small circles in pink felt, then attach them just under the eyes using hot glue
  • Sew the beak to the head
  • Attach the head to the fluffy body by sewing or using hot glue (I found that using hot glue was easier to get the look I was going for, where the head looks “squished” into the body)
  • Sew the antennas onto the top of the head (use / weave in both tails)

And now your mini Altaria is finished! I hope you enjoy this free pattern, and if you make one please share it with me! (On my Facebook page, this blog, or my Instagram @tokyodragon.crochet)
