Create a clutch of colorful dragon eggs with your favorite DK-weight yarn and a small wooden egg. Who knows what might hatch from the beaded egg? Perhaps a wee fire lizard with gemstone eyes? Is it Draco, Puff, or Spyro in the spiral egg?

The beaded egg is worked from the pointy end; beads are pre-strung. The spiral egg is worked from the round end. Both eggs are worked in the round--use your preferred small-circumference knitting method (DPNs, magic loop, two circs, etc.)

Full written directions for both eggs are included in this pattern.


  • 2.5” wooden egg
  • 70 size 6/0 beads (for beaded egg)
  • screw-in eyelet hanger (optional)
