I love living by a creek. The dragonflies are plenty and pretty. Shimmery wings and enormous eyes are quite the spectacle in flight. Occasionally I can get one to pose for me, but its been a while.


I thought I would crochet a dragonfly just for fun and went looking for patterns on the wide world web of crochet patterns. I found a delightful specimen, but haven’t made one of my own yet.

The site where I found the pattern, MYpicot, has lots of interesting and wonderful patterns and tutorials. Rather than keep it to myself until I crocheted my dragonfly, I’m sharing it with you now. If you crochet a dragonfly from this pattern, please share it with me, I’d love to see it. Enjoy.

UPDATE: For those of you looking for the pattern through the main site, try clicking on the above photo of the crocheted dragonfly, that should take you directly to the pattern. Or click here.

MORE INFO: This link here will take you to the MyPicot site’s guide to their patterns, it will help you to crochet the dragonfly following their diagram.

    I am unable to get that pattern on that website. I guess it isn’t there anymore. Can you email me the pattern? My email is Kirajsanchez@live.com

    Thank you and Happy Crocheting!!

    I also looked on the site for that pattern and I’m also of the opinion that it is no longer on the site. Is it possible to get the pattern emailed to me also please? Cheers, Janet.

    This is so great I have been looking for a dragon fly pattern to crochet, I live in a small town and have lived here for a long time, my mother was in a nursing here and passed away in June. I have never seen a dragon fly near my home until she passed. Since then I have several of them around the house always flying around one even followed me out of the driveway on my way to work. My mom knew I liked dragon flies and I truly believe that she has sent them to me, even my 8 year old grand-daughter said “Grandma where did all these dragon flies come from” I told her it is her great-grandmother letting us know she is watcing us. Thanks so much for the pattern I intend to make plenty of them. Thanks again

    I too tried to find this beautiful dragonfly motif but was unable to. I have bought a dress with dragonflies on and am making an evening bag to match, and would love to add the dragonfly. If there is any way you could send this to me I would be so grateful.

    I would also love to get a copy of this pattern (as it seems to no longer be available on MyPicot). Do you have a copy you can send?

    • 10. phaskins  |  November 14, 2011 at 8:36 pm

      Looks like they may have moved the patter, here’s the web address: http://www.mypicot.com/patterns/7005.pdf but I’ve also attached the PDF pattern for you. Thanks for visiting my blog, Patti

        Every time I try to download this pattern it says file damaged. I would love to crochet this dragonfly. Can anyone think of another way I can get the pattern? any other advice regarding this file damage message would also be great. Thanks! Linda

    Thanks so much! My mom is straight-out obsessed with dragonflies, and clearly has too much time on her hands. She’ll love crocheting this pattern.

  • 13. DeBee  |  January 30, 2012 at 8:45 am

    Thank you for linking this pattern. I absolutely love dragonflies (and butterflies). I’m a fairly novice crocheter, so will have to ask someone what stitches I need to use…

  • 14. DeBee  |  January 30, 2012 at 8:52 am

    LOL – I went back to have a look at the website and found the stitch legend. I’m good now 🙂

    LOVE this pattern, thanx so much … one question, any idea how big the dragonfly is? I wanted to make a drangonfly pin

    • 16. phaskins  |  August 21, 2012 at 7:09 am

      Hi, I have no idea how big the dragonfly is. I have not found the time yet to try to make one. I guess it would depend on the size yarn and hook you use. That’s just my guess.

      Thanks for visiting my blog. Patti Haskins
