Supplies for Amigurumi Dinosaurs

Take a look below at the different weights of yarn, hook sizes and other things that work best for amigurumi dinosaur designs.

  1. Stitch Markers: stitch marker is important to keep track of the rounds you are working in most amigurumi patterns. Amigurumi is usually worked in continuous rounds, so it is critical to be able to keep track of the rounds with this marker.
  2. Crochet Hook: Most dinosaur patterns will use a smaller sized crochet hook than the yarn they are using calls for. This is because it will create a tighter single crochet stitch in the pattern, which in turn makes a cleaner looking end product.
  3. Safety Eyes: Most of the crocheted dinosaur designs you will find to make use safety eyes. These are typically plastic snap together pieces that form an eye in amigurumi. If you prefer not to use safety eyes, you can surface crochet eyes onto almost any of the patterns instead.
  4. Yarn: While almost any yarn can be used for amigurumi patterns, the most commonly used weight is Light/DK or Medium/Worsted weight yarn. A dinosaur made with DK yarn will be slightly smaller than one made with worsted weight medium yarn, but that is typically the preferred outcome.
  5. Stuffing: Most amigurumi will have stuffing, so this is an important material to have on hand. The Polyfill brand is my personal favorite to use for filling amigurumi projects.
  6. Yarn Needle: A yarn needle (or tapestry needle) will be helpful to create eyes if you aren’t using safety eyes, and also to weave in ends after you are done crocheting a Dino.

I can’t wait to see which crocheted dinosaur you pick. Happy Dino Crocheting!
