Triceratops Pattern pdf, create your own amigurumi knitted dino


Instant Digital Download

Sixteen page written pattern for an amigurumi Triceratops toy with loads of photographs and a diagram to help you create your very own armoured vegetarian beast with feisty frills and horns!

It has taken me two years and numerous attempts to get this design just the way I wanted it so I'm sure you'll find your Triceratops is Tops(!)

You'll need to be able to knit back and forth, in the round, increase, decrease and pick up stitches (although the last is optional as instructions are included for knitting separately and sewing together too). Youtube is an excellent resource if there are any stitches you don't know and I also offer help by email.

I've used worsted (aran) weight yarn and US5 (3.75mm) needles for the one pictured and it is about 9.5" (24cm) long but you could easily use a different weight if you wanted a smaller or larger dino.

You will be able to download the pattern from etsy once you have paid. If you have difficulty doing this please let me know as I can easily email it to you if you prefer.

Care instructions

Almost all my yarn is superwash treated, so you can use the wool cycle on your washing machine, although hand washing is kinder if you have the time.

I choose acid dyes rated “wash fast” or “very wash fast” at 30*C, and I test wash each colourway. Nonetheless it is sensible to wash items separately on the first occasion as with any fibre or garment.

If you put my yarn in on long hot washes with fast spins, harsh detergents and stain remover they will age and fade much faster. This is not my fault, wool is like that, and you make your choices.
