Many years ago I made a triceratops pattern, it started off all kinds of goofy before developing into what I had imagined.
I really wanted it to have the pointed beak and stand on four legs, as so many other patterns are more of a teddy style.
I had a lot of fun trying it in different yarns, my favourite will always be the Dancing Baby DK from Ice Yarns in rainbow, but it's unfortunately no longer available. It took a few tries to get it right, but being stubborn pays off sometimes.
With such pretty colours what's not to love?
I have had the written pattern up on Etsy and Ravelry for a few years now, but have been asked many times for a video tutorial. I understand how daunting plushie patterns are to start, my heart was warmed by my testers, many of whom had never crocheted a plushie before and still jumped in!
The time has come though, and the full tutorial is available free on YouTube now, with full instructions on screen to help teach reading a pattern along side the stitches.
To ensure I captured all the details, it is in two parts (with a third on the way for detailed sewing instructions).
Check it out now:
Part 1 covers the equipment required, making the legs, body and tail.
The cotton triceratops made in the video is available now on my Etsy store as a one off.
The PDF / downloadable pattern is available now on Etsy here and Ravelry here.
Purchases on these stores will help support me, as I have started running this channel full time as of February 2021. Unfortunately I have lost my job due to chronic illness, so if you enjoy my tutorials and patterns, please share these with others and if you're able purchase a pattern via Ravelry or Etsy.
And for a bit of an out-take to round off this blog, the original triceratops with a goofy beak:
I like the one that is spinning around constantly. Is.... is it still going?ReplyDelete
