Kevin the Dino Free Crochet Pattern



If there's one thing I know for sure is that kids love dinosaurs!


Both my niece and my nephew go crazy for this large creatures...they know everything about them, and love to read books and play with dinosaurs toys!


So I though, why not designing a new amigurumi dinosaur?

Kevin the Dino is such an easy project, that would work perfectly to create a colorful and fun crib mobile attachments, or a pillow, if made with bulky yarn!


*** You can purchase an AD-FREE PDF of KEVIN THE DINO pattern with many step-by-step pictures on Etsy HERE.
