Skill Level:

small skill level requirement Beginner

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • ch, sc, increase/decrease, crochet in the round

Pattern Description:

"Plato" is the fifth in a new series of patterns on "Gumball Dragons." All Gumball Dragons are round like a gumball and have an affinity for candy, thus the reason that they're so pudgy.

Depending on the kind of candy that they prefer, that actually determines the variations in color of their ears, horns, tails, etc.

This one is named "Plato" because of his "plates" that form a mowhawk of sorts. His plates camouflage him so he blends in with plant and flower petals. He loves grape and strawberry candy that he finds when he waddles about on the forest floor.

This is an easy pattern an only uses sc, crochet in the round, and increase/decrease techniques.
