  1. Stitch List

  • Sl st – slip stitch
  • Sc – single crochet
  • Sc inc – single crochet increase
  • Sc dec – single crochet decrease
  • Hdc – half double crochet
  • Ch – chain
  • Popcorn stitch – 4 (or 5) hdc in same stitch, insert hook through first stitch and pull up a loop, then ch 1

 Notes

Here are a few handy tips to help you with the pattern.

 Gauge

The dinosaurs have no specific gauge, however they need to be as tight as possible to prevent the stuffing from coming out.

 Other Notes

  • All these patterns are worked in continuous rounds, do not sl st at the end of each round. A stitch marker is essential for keeping track of the start of your rows.
  • It is best to stuff as you go with these patterns. Most patterns indicate the best points to stuff, but incase you miss them, it is always best to stuff if you hit a row that gets to 12 stitches.  Any less makes it much harder to stuff large areas.
