Don’t make wars—make dinosaurs!


Just in time for dinosaur hatching season, the adorable Amy Apatosaurus is now available as a PDF pattern!

This Jurassic classic will melt your heart and stretch your knitting skills at the same time. You’ll curve her neck up with a little mattress stitch trick, then bend her head forward with a few wrap & turn short rows. Links to how-to videos are included to help you along the way.

Use any yarn you like (hand-dyed and variegated varieties are fun options) and corresponding needles for a pocket-sized dinosaur that knits up in an afternoon and will live forever in your heart. Samples shown are knit with fingering-weight WoolTribe Homegrown Sock yarn and size 1 double-pointed needles.

🦕 Now available from the Mochimochi Shop and Ravelry! Check out my bio for the links 🦕

The Amy pattern was originally released through the Knitrino app, which is a great place for tiny knitted dinos to be born. (Stay tuned for another new hatching there as well…😆)

You can see some adorable Amys already living their best lives over on Instagram—and tag your own Amy photos with #amyapato to join in! 🦕💕

Thank you to Marilyn Passmore for her tech editing help with this pattern!
