Zodiac dragon crochet pattern

People born in the Year of the Dragon are healthy, energetic, excitable, short-tempered, and stubborn. They are also honest, sensitive, brave, and they inspire confidence and trust. Dragon people are the most eccentric of any in the eastern zodiac. They neither borrow money nor make flowery speeches, but they tend to be soft-hearted which sometimes gives others an advantage over them. They are compatible with Rats, Snakes, Monkeys, and Roosters.

Amigurumi dragon is a lovely gift to make for people who born in May or any the year of Dragon (1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012, 2024).
