I mentioned months ago that I had my eyes on the dinosaur patterns at PlanetJune. I finally caved and bought the stegosaurus pattern to try out, and I’m so glad I did! Isn’t this little guy adorable? I had to photograph him at night, because I finished him just in time to give him as a gift, but he shines even with flash photos!
This pattern was very straightforward and easy to follow. I think his torso is slightly shorter than it was supposed to be – I had an extra plate at the end, and my kids kept playing with my stitch counter. He’s still adorable, though, and I was especially thrilled to try out techniques June has invented (magic ring, invisible decrease, and joining tips) that make amigurumi crochet even cuter.
Now I’m tempted to purchase more dinosaur patterns – but first I have requests for more stegosauruses!
I’m sharing this post at T.N.T. Thursdays at Happy Quilting.
