This little guy originally started as a keychain in my mind, though the final result might be a little big for that purpose! He would probably work great as a Big Keychain if you wanted to give it a try! He would look very cute hanging from the zipper on a backpack for sure, and fabulous sitting on your desk! Without further ado, here is the Free Pattern for my Tiny Dinosaur Amigurumi:

  1. Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get
    a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using
    the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one?
    Thanks a lot!

    1. Hi Good Friday Wishes! I’m not sure if it varies from web host to web host, but I just found mine by searching in the plugins section from my control panel. I am no expert Lol just learning as I go with the website. Hope that helps & thanks for reading! 🙂 <3 Lisa

  2. Lisa, thanks for sharing this adorable pattern. I was looking for a little something extra to go with a baby blanket, bootie & hat set for a friend’s new baby. This little guy is perfect….a cute gift topper they can s use as a decoration or take along toy.

        1. Hi Sharon,

          A few people have had trouble like yourself. There should be a box that pops up asking you to enter your email address and subscribe to my newsletter to view the free pattern. The best thing to try is to refresh the page or try accessing from another browser. I am working on trying to get the blog running more smoothly, but I am the sole person running this website, without a lot of tech knowledge. This patter is available on ravelry for $2 for the PDF version as well.

          Thanks for visiting!

  3. Thank you so much Lisa. This is exactly what I’ve been looking for. My 4 year old grandson wants some of these tiny dinos hatching from eggs so I’ll use your pattern for the dinos and make my own eggs…Sharing this is so generous of you. Thanks again

    1. Hi Ruth!

      It is my absolute pleasure!! 🙂 I am so glad you like the pattern, and can use if for your grandson! My 3 year old so loves his dinos a lot, and I’m sure your grandson will too! Enjoy!

      Best,
      Lisa Fox

    1. Hello Patricia!

      To view the pattern, all you have to do is enter your email in the light blue box that pops up. Then click “View Pattern” to have instant access the the pattern! You may not be able to see this if you have restrictive settings or popups blocked on your browser. Let me know if I can help you further. 🙂 I hope to add this pdf to Ravelry in the future as well.

      Thanks and enjoy!
      Lisa Fox

      1. I had the same problem as Patricia with not being able to find the pattern, even after putting my email address into the blue box. I guess I’ll have to wait until the pdf is available in Ravelry. 😔😔😔

        1. Hi Amanda,

          I’m sorry the pattern is not working for you. I am checking into a possible issue with my site, but have to get help for this from my wonderful tech support! I am working hard to get that pdf copy ready for ravelry as well. 🙂

          Thank you!
          Lisa Fox

    1. Hi Brianna,

      I’m sorry your having trouble. I am checking into any problem with the site. I would ask that you check your browser security settings to make sure popups are not blocked and try again. I do have plans to publish a PDF on Ravelry as soon as I can.

      Thanks!
      Lisa Fox

  4. I also can’t find the pattern & I know you’re working on the fix. I just wanted to comment so I’ll be notified if you comment when it’s fixed.

    They’re adorable and I look forward to making lots of these little guys!

  5. I don’t have pop ups blocked but for some reason there isn’t a blue box 😔 I really wanted to make some of these for my nieces and nephews. I think they would love these but can’t access the pattern

    1. Hi Nicole,

      So sorry that I am still working to resolve this issue and figure out why it only happens to some viewers.

      Thanks for your patience!
      Lisa Fox

  6. Can anyone please point me in the right direction to find the pattern please? I get the ‘head’ part but after the head it just says finished!!

    1. Hi Hannah,

      I’m sorry you’re having trouble. There is supposed to be a box that pops up and asks you to enter your email in order to view the pattern instantly. However it seems a few of my users are not seeing the box. I am working on a fix for this problem, as well as a PDF copy of the pattern that will be available on Ravelry soon.

      Thank you for reaching out!
      Lisa Fox
