Baby Brachiosaurus Crochet Pattern





Introduction: Baby Brachiosaurus Crochet Pattern

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).

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

Very nice! Sometime I'll try it!

OMG! Is that danbo(as in the cardboard, money powered, amazon box robot)?

If you are new to crocheting, like me, then yeah its pretty hard! :D

But it will be easier once you get the hang of it!

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

I am going to make this today!

Cute! Love the first photo!
