my creative space: dinosaur amigurumi

My little man is completely crazy about dinosaurs at the moment... I mean totally obsessed!! And when I saw this dinosaur crochet pattern on Amigurumi Patterns, I just couldn't help myself!

I used the pattern as a guide. I used 8ply wool, used a 4.0 mm crochet hook and made a slightly bigger dinosaur! I also added the spikes on the back, I'm not sure if he's historically correct or there is an actual dinosaur that looks like that but it doesn't matter because my little man just loves his new dinosaur... ROAR :)

I'm really enjoying learning about all the different dinosaurs! My gosh I can't believe that there were so many different and weird looking ones with names I can't possibly pronounce! Looks like I'm getting a second education through my little man :)

Hope you are having a great creative week!
There are loads more creative people over at our creative spaces...

  3. Beautiful dinosaur! What is it with boys & dinosaurs?! This gives me food for thought for the upcoming big birthday. PS my boy was nagging me to play with your boy this morning :-)

  4. Isn't it fun? The dinos make my head spin. My 7yo's favorite is still the anklyosaurus because of the club on the tail--and he got to TOUCH a fossilized club at the science museum. Brilliant!

    Awesome dinosaur, and really, who's to say there wasn't one that looked just like that? :-)

  9. It's funny how boys are so drawn to dinosaurs, isn't it? For Cohen it was love at first sight. Same as trucks, earth movers and trains. It surprised me!

    Your dino is awesome. I love how all the crochet bits come together in the end to form such a sweet toy. I'm sure he will be well loved! :)

  13. So cute! But looks a little complicated to make! Well done! I have been doing some drawing/sketching/painting this week, but I sold my digital camera and so I can't post it before I get my new one. Have a nice day!
