"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. All TBC Patterns come with free online help. Just PM on Ravelry and I will answer your questions and help you through any trouble spots.

My crocheted amigurumi patterns of adorable stuffed critters are fashioned in vibrant abstract jungle colors. Look over the newborns in the critter nursery! The "Gumball Dragon" series is what's hot now. See if you can find the dragon in the candy color that your family will cherish!! Each "critter" is handmade using nothing but time, imagination and the desire to see if "I can" create it. The TBC "unraveled" look is somewhere on it's person, whether it be as horns, eyelashes, a mane, a tail, or maybe a beard of white.
