About: My goal is to provide the most accurate, detailed, and clear crochet instructions possible. I spend many hours writing, designing, proof-reading, and testing each pattern. Each pattern includes step-by-step ...

This dinosaur amigurumi is the original design of my 13-year-old daughter. She has been crocheting with me for about two years, and she loves coming up with her own ideas. She made this brachiosaurus as a gift for a little boy she babysits. I was so smitten by it, I asked her if I could write up the pattern and publish it online. (For more amigurumi patterns, see my Etsy shop.)

Pattern is for those with beginner-to-intermediate crochet skills and basic needle-work skills. Doll parts are made in spiral rounds. To make doll, you will need to know how to:
-- read a crochet pattern
-- chain
-- slip stitch
-- single crochet
-- single crochet decrease or invisible decrease

Pattern includes:
-- definitions of stitch abbreviations
-- materials list, including recommended yarn brands and colors and where to find materials
-- links to helpful online crochet tutorials
-- helpful color photos

Finished doll is about 7 inches (17 cm) tall and stands on its own. You will need a D/3.25mm or E/3.5mm hook, (2) 9mm black eye posts with safety backs, polyester fiberfill, and worsted weight 100% acrylic yarn in any color. Recommended yarn brands are Lion Brand Vanna's Choice, Loops & Threads Impeccable Worsted, or Red Heart Super Savers. 

Pattern is a PDF (Portable Document Format: a printable, read-only file viewable with Adobe Reader or similar document viewer).

You are welcome to sell the dolls you make with my patterns if you include "Janawhitley at instructables.com" in the ad copy. Thanks!

I've just finished making this lovely little chap, the pattern was very easy to follow even for a newbie like me. Huge thanks to your Daughter, she is very talented. ☺️

just use bulkier yarn, or double / triple ... the yarn strands (with a bigger hook) and/or stitches and rows (same hook) ;-)

Yes, it is a fairly simple pattern. It is helpful but not necessary to know magic adjustable loop and invisible decrease.
