Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is out on 6th June and we could not be more excited. When the franchise returned to the big screen in 2015, many were skeptical, many were dubious… but many were wrong. Giving a pleasurable nod to the ‘90s classics and bringing us a brand-new park with enhanced technology, there wasn’t anything to dislike about Jurassic World. And this new installment is set to be just as spectacular.
Why not celebrate the new release by introducing your favourite hobby to prehistoric times? We’ve rounded up 17 amazing crocheted, amigurumi dinos for you to make, and we can guarantee you’ll be wowed by each and every one of them. Enjoy…
Irene Strange’s amigurumi dinosaurs are so sweet and perfect for little ones. We love their round, podgy nature. You can make a brontosaurus, stegosaurus and triceratops with this free pattern!
Ethel the T-rex is surprisingly sweet in shades of red and pink. Created by Sarah Louise Read, this T-rex toy is made complete with simple embroidery – check out that zig-zag mouth! Download the pattern for free today.
Sarah Louise Read also made little Ralph, a friendly triceratops who is sure to make kids smile from ear to ear. Using just a few simple stitches, he couldn’t be easier to whip up. Plus, the pattern is free!
Toy Story’s Rex
No dinosaur round-up would be complete without showcasing Rex from Toy Story. And isn’t it wonderfully accurate? The goofy grin is spot on. You can buy this pattern for £5.45 at the click of a button. Why not make it in time for Toy Story 4 next year?
Is there anything cuter than a baby animal? These hatching dinosaurs are made complete with a pterodactyl, T-rex, stegosaurus and apatosaurus. Choose one or buy all four!
This free pattern is too cute for words. Frank the brachiosaurus is made up of just three crochet stitches, and the cheeky grin is the ideal finishing touch. Make him tonight!
We absolutely love this stegosaurus. There’s something about those bony plates – the spikes on its back – that are just so classically, well, dinosaur! You’ll really enjoy making this toy.
Finding it difficult to pronounce parasaurolophus? Us too! But we do know that this crochet dinosaur is unique and undeniably cute – despite the horn sticking out the back of its head. You can download this pattern from Etsy.
Barbara the pterodactyl – made by Sarah Louise Read – is simply sensational. She’s as far as you can get from the scary, flying dinosaurs seen in Jurassic Park III and Jurassic World. Download the free pattern and you won’t be disappointed.
It feels weird to say it, but this T-rex is perfect for cuddles. Just look at those squashy feet and tubby tummy! Only problem is, he won’t be able to cuddle you back with those classic short arms. You can download this pattern for free from Ravelry.
We mustn’t forget dinosaurs of the deep. This underwater plesiosaurus pattern can be downloaded from Etsy for £5.45. Aren’t the fins adorable?
Let’s finish things off with this brightly-coloured triceratops toy. The tummy is made with ombré yarn for a jazzy effect, but you could just stick with regular yarn if you prefer. Hannah Cooper’s crochet pattern is available for free – what could be better?
