About copyright: Its really something great when people like what I have designed.
You can sell the final item or whatever you like, but it would be nice to reference
where you found the pattern!
If there is anything you do not understand or there are any mistakes, please, send
me a message!
As you can see in the way I write, English is not my first language. So, you could
come across some mistakes and grammatical inconsistencies. Sorry and my
apologies!
This file describes how to crochet a girlie dragonfly. The wings use a multicolor yarn
and the body is worked in a solid color.

ABOUT YARN:
The yarn is Ami cotton bulky (Pierrot) (one solid skein and one multicolor) (Pierrot). Yardage:
100 grams and 105 meters.
Number of skeins: 1 light blue (body), 1 multicolor (wings).

ABOUT GAUGE:
It is not important, as far as you are consistent with your tension.

ABOUT HOOK:
4 mm hook
Remember that when making amigurumis, stitches should be tight.

YOU WILL NEED:

Yarn for the dragonfly and some black yarn for the mouth.
Two safety eyes.
Stuffing.
Tapestry needle.
Invisible thread (to sew the body to the wings)


ABOUT CROCHET TERMS:
Ive followed the US terminology.
Stitch: st
Chain: ch
Slip stitch: sl st
Single crochet: sc
FLO: Front Loop Only
BLO: Back Loop Only
Sc2tog: decreasing two sc (i.e., 2 st become 1)
Sc3tog: decreasing 3 sc (i.e. 3 stitches become 1)

NOTE: Ive made all the decreases as invisible decreases

PATTERN:

All the pattern is worked in spirals, so do not join at the end/beginning of a


row.
