Mini Barry the Brachiosaurus - Free Crochet Pattern

Mini Barry is the most adorable thing I’ve ever created. Please note that you can alter the size of all my amigurumi patterns by changing your yarn and hook size, even your tension being different than mine can affect this. But this is a new pattern based off the original Barry to create a mini Barry that would be small even if you used the exact same yarn and hook as the original Barry.


Use #TheCsofLifeDinosaur for me to see your dinosaurs!
