The light blue Pterodactyl model was made using KnitPicks Palette fingering weight yarn in color Sagebrush using 2.25 mm (US size 1) needles. The orange Pterodactyl model was made in worsted weight yarn using 3.75 mm (US size 5) needles and, as demonstrated, is large enough to carry off a Beanie Baby.
