Baby Brontosaurus Pattern

Baby Brontosaurus will be the first in a series of baby dinosaur patterns that I will be sharing over the next couple of weeks! I’m very excited about this project. If you have any questions about the pattern, do get in touch and I would be happy to clear up any confusion.

The pattern for the brontosaurus egg will be published in a separate post.

For this project, you will need yarn for the head, body and legs of the dinosaur, black thread for the eyes, a crochet hook, sewing needle, and fiberfill.

I used Cascade Yarns Avalon and a 3.5mm crochet hook. The crochet abbreviations (US) are at the bottom of the post, if you need them for reference.
