Pattern Details


Daniel measures 8 1/2” tall when completed with worsted weight yarn.

Want a bigger or smaller dinosaur? Use thicker or thinner yarn.


This is a beginner pattern, but it does use a few skills that are best tackled if you've made one or two amigurumi already.

To crochet this dinosaur, you will need to:

  • single crochet
  • increase
  • decrease
  • sc3tog

Don't worry - the PDF pattern has links to videos teaching you all the skills you'll need! And it contains progress photos of all the important steps, so you won’t get lost. :-)

This pattern is not available for commercial resale. That meansyou may not copy and sell or digitally distribute the pattern or any variation of the pattern

For example, you may not print the pattern and sell those copies.


You may, however, sell anything you make with Shiny Happy World patterns as long as you are the one making it.

For example, if you're using this pattern to make items which you sell at a craft fair or in an online shop, that's great!

Talk to Me

If you're hiring out any part of the process, please get in touch and we'll work out a fair licensing agreement.

For example, if you want to hire someone to help you crochet, or to do all the stuffing for you, those two scenarios would require a licensing agreement. Get in touch! I'm easy to talk to. :-)

Perfect Cute Dino

This pattern is exactly what I wanted. The technique for the perfect lizard snout and tail is the perfect shape. He is cute, and this is a great pattern.
