Amigurumi Dinosaur Free Pattern

Hello amigurumi lovers and beautiful visitors, I wanted to share the free amigurumi patterns for you here. In my article I will share 1 pattern and how to make it for you. At the end of my article, I will share amigurumi patterns that can generate ideas for you.

Skill level: Beginner
Crochet hook: 2.50 mm
Measurements: approx. 27 cm long (10.6 inches)
Materials: A piece of black scrap yarn for the eyes, stuffing
Yarn: Rainbow Cotton 8/4
Sage Green (#098) – 2 skeins
Silver Grey (#014) – 1 skein

Abbreviations:
ch = chain
sc = single crochet
sl st = slip stitch
mr = magic ring
inc = increase
dec = decrease
rnd(s) = round(s)
(xx) = Number of stitches after ended round

Info and tips:
Always stuff the head firmly.
Work tightly to avoid holes between the stitches.
All pieces are worked in the round except for the body.
Popcorn stitch = Work 5 double crochets in the same stitch. Pull the hook out of the loop and
insert it into the first of the 5 double crochets. Insert the hook into the last loop again, you
now have 2 loops on the hook. Yarn over and pull through both loops “closing” the 5 double
crochets into a popcorn stitch.

Fasten off and leave a tail long enough for closing the hole. Use a needle to gather the last 9
stitches in the front loop and tighten the yarn to close the hole nicely. Weave in ends.
