This pattern is for a baby parasaurolophus, written using US crochet terminology. It is an advanced beginner pattern. There are no complicated stitches but the shaping in the head and neck requires care and attention and is not suited to a complete beginner in making amigurumi. It is assumed you can use a magic ring, increase, decrease, can work in a continuous spiral and know the importance of using a round marker. You can use any yarn type for this dinosaur but the example was made using DK weight wool and a 3.25mm crochet hook. I also used 7.5mm safety eyes though these can also be embroidered. Made using these materials your parasaurolophus will measure approximately 16cm in length. You will need about 15g of the main colour and scraps for the beak and crest and a small amount of black to embroider the mouth and nostrils. You will also need a round marker, two additional stitch markers or yarn scraps to mark eye placement, stuffing and a yarn needle.

You are welcome to sell any dinosaurs made from my pattern
