3in1 Ice Dragon Baby Blanket – Crochet Pattern by Crafting Happiness
This Ice Dragon Baby Blanket pattern was a challenge for me. Not in designing it, but in making it simple and understandable enough so that anyone can make it, without taking away from it’s beauty. I did not wanted a plain looking dragon.
After a lot of trial and error, I think I’ve done just that: a beautiful design that is simple and easy to follow and your little one will adore. What do you think?
And what a great idea! A cuddly warm blanket or playmat that the baby can play with and then it folds into a decorative dragon toy to decorate the nursery.
Use it as a playmat or stroller blanket if you wish. This blanket is perfect for a minimalist home, it’s gender-neutral and looks gorgeous when folded and rested on the cot.
I used the pointy crocodile stitch for the blanket part and chose shades of blue to turn my dragon into an ice dragon.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
I am stuck on this pattern, can you help?
Every pattern you purchase from my shop comes with help and support. I will help you get unstuck and finish your project, so you can buy with confidence and try something new.
If you are completely new to crocheting, I recommend starting with beginner patterns and build up your confidence, pay attention to the skill level of my patterns and buy only if you are already at that level.
NOTE: The free version of this pattern does not come with the same help, just because it’s not fair on those who support me and bought this pattern.
That doesn’t mean that you can’t contact me if there is a mistake or something unclear with this pattern, it simply means that you will need to learn the stitches, the techniques and learn how to read a pattern on your own.
Can I crochet this blanket using Aran yarn (worsted yarn #4)?
Yes, you can! The body parts will come out a little larger than my own, but still in the same shape. The blanket can be adjusted by simply crocheting more chains in the starting chain. Instructions on how to adjust the size of the blanket are in the pattern.
Do I have to use the same yarn brand as you to get the same result?
No, you don’t. You can use any brand you like but pay attention to the yardage, different brands have different yardage. I recommend this yarn because it has beautiful colors and washes well.
Can I change the size of the blanket?
Yes, you can. Each pattern can be adjusted by simply changing the number of starting chains and rows. Please keep in mind that making the blanket a lot larger than advise will change the way it looks when folded.
Can I sell items made with your pattern?
Yes, you can if you make them yourself. Mass production of my patterns is not allowed without written consent from me, the designer. Please check the copyright section for more details.
