Baby Tyrannosaurus Rex Pattern

Baby Tyrannosaurus Rex is the final dinosaur of the series! This pattern took me a couple of tries as the first one looked a little more like a baby chicken than a T-Rex. But I finally figured out how to do the arms, and I think the white detail work helps this dino come to life. I hope you like it as much as I do. As always, feel free to ask me to clarify if any of my instructions are confusing.

Next week, I will be posting the baby dinosaur egg pattern to complete the nest!

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

I used Valeria di Roma Australia Merino and a 3.5mm crochet hook. The crochet abbreviations (US) are at the bottom of the post, if you need them for reference.
