Crochet Dinosaur Free Pattern

Crochet Dinosaur ~ Free Crochet Pattern

crochet dinosaur free crochet dinosaur crochet pattern

In this pattern, you will crochet Head, Body, and Tail in one go. Then you will crochet the foot and the leg in one go and stitch on. If you put a squeaky toy inside this dinosaur it will be a perfect toy for your dog. 

Adjustments.

If you want the dinosaur to have a longer body you can prolong the body part before you begin crochet tail. If you don’t want your dinosaur so round just avoid the last round of increase (round 31).

Crochet Materials.

Useful Crochet Hint.

If parts of your dinosaur has ‘holes’ in it showing stuffing due to all the decreasing (makes stitches bigger looking like holes) you can put a string of blue yarn using a sewing needle across those stitches. This fills the ‘holes’ and makes the stuffing not showing. I let some holes show because it added to the texture of the dinosaur, especially down the legs.

I used black yarn and a sewing needle and made dots on the green Bobble stitches. I also used white curly yarn  and gave this dinosaur a fringe. Just little add-ons that make all the difference.

Crochet Eyes. 

You can use craft eyes bought in the craft shop, however in this example I stitched it on using a sewing needle.

Mouth. 

I stitched on the mouth. You can make yours bigger if you like, but I just wanted a small mouth on this one.
