Let’s start with the most popular of my crochet dinosaurs, the triceratops! I have 3 different base triceratops crochet patterns to offer, including the full size version, mini version, as well as a lovey.

tanner the Triceratops

This Triceratops crochet pattern is by far my most popular dinosaur pattern. Tanner works up great in a variety of yarns, and is especially popular for creating various themed triceratops. You can see a few of those theme variations below. My favorites have been the Strawberry Triceratops, Blueberry Triceratops, and Sunflower Triceratops!

You can find this pattern for free on my blog, with the ad-free PDF available on Etsy or Ravelry.

Mini Tanner the Triceratops

This smaller Triceratops crochet pattern is just a mini replica of the larger Tanner the Triceratops pattern. Mini Tanner is one of my personal favorites! I love making this pattern in velvet and plush yarns like Parfait Chunky, which creates such a nice size plushie, with less time than the full size Tanner.

Mini Tanner the Triceratops is available for free on my blog, and also has an ad-free PDF available on Etsy and Ravelry.

Strawberry Triceratops

This free pattern modification to make a strawberry Triceratops is definitely a fan favorite! By making a few color changes, and substituting the strawberry pattern instead of the horns, Tanner the Triceratops becomes a fun and fruity dinosaur!

This pattern modification instructions and strawberry pattern are available for free on my blog, and save it to your Ravelry projects.

These next free dinosaur crochet patterns are for the Tarbosaurus dinosaur. The Tarbosaurus can be compared to a Tyrannosaurus Rex (T-Rex) and Allosaurus, but these cute crochet patterns are nothing to fear!

The Stygimoloch is one of my son’s favorite dinosaurs, so I had to design one! You may remember “Stiggy” from Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom movie. She’s the dinosaur who headbutts the door open. The Stygimoloch is very similar to the Pachycephalosaurus, however, the Pachy was a bit larger.

Stevie the Stygimoloch

This Stygimoloch crochet pattern is one of my more detailed dinosaur crochet patterns, with the dome piece on her head, as well as the crown of horns.

Did you know that a Pterosaur describes several “flying dinosaurs”, such as the Pterodactyl, Pteranodon, Quetzalcoatlus, Dimorphodon, and more! While Pterosaurs weren’t technically dinosaurs (they’re reptiles), they lived in the same periods and went extinct with the dinosaurs.

Tori the Pterosaur

I really enjoyed designing this free dinosaur crochet pattern for a Pterosaur! I especially love the crest on the back of the head and the teeny tiny tail!

You can find this Pterosaur crochet pattern for free on my blog, or get the ad-free PDF on Ravelry or Etsy.

Mini Tori the Pterosaur

This smaller version of Tori the Pterosaur is so much fun to make and works up beautifully in a variety of yarns!

Themed Dinosaurs

As I mentioned above, there have been a lot of fun modifications done to my free dinosaur crochet patterns over the years. Here are a few that you can find detailed instructions for.

Candy Corn Dinosaurs

I made a few different amigurumi dinosaurs in a candy corn theme around Halloween. Who doesn’t want to see Halloween dinosaur crochet patterns? These modification instructions are for Mini Stevie the Stygimoloch, Mini Tanner the Triceratops, and Mini Toby the Tarbosaurus.

  1. First off, I love these patterns! They are so fun to make and they turn out beautiful. Second, would you mind if I sell plushies made from you patterns at a market? -Mizzen

    1. Thank you, I’m so glad you like them! Yes, I’m happy for you to sell the finished items made from my patterns. Enjoy!

  2. This is the second pattern of yours that I have made. I love them. They are so easy to make. The first one was Fredric the Fox, bow I’m crocheting Toby. Please keep the amazing patterns coming. I will be making more of your patterns in the future.

  3. Your patterns are the best! Clear and easy to follow instructions. I’ve made two Tanners, one for each of my boys, and they love them. Thank you Nicole!

  4. Any chance you have one that “resembles” Little Foot from Land Before Time? That was my kiddo’s favorite almost 40 years ago (no way am I that old lol)

  5. I stumbled across your patterns & I am IN LOVE!!! In the middle of making Tanner in Bernat Blanket yarn, so he’s HUGE! But I love him so much! I can’t wait til he’s finished!! Then I’ll be making every other one you’ve got on here! Super grateful for you! Paty

    1. Hello, I do not have a spiderweb modification for my dinosaur patterns. Those who have done the spiderweb theme have used my Tanner the Triceratops or Mini Tanner the Triceratops and freehanded their modifications.

  6. Hi I love making your dinosaurs and I want to make the sunflower one but I can’t find the pattern can you please help me

    1. Hello,

      I do not have a sunflower modification for any of my dinosaurs. I have seen others use Tanner the Triceratops and Mini Tanner the Triceratops, and just change up the colors and add their own sunflower elements. Hope that helps!

  7. Hi. I tried stygimoloch . It turned out beautiful. Thanku very much for sharing such a beautiful pattern n.
