Tobie the T-Rex

 
Tobie the T-Rex - Free Crochet Pattern

Say hello to our 3rd dinosaur in the dinosaur ragdoll series, meet Tobie, the Tyrannosaurus Rex. Probably the most well known dinosaur ever. Also the scariest. Glad they're extinct and we don't have to worry about getting eaten by a T-rex, am I right? My son is enjoying eating Barry and Sammy now that he has his hungry Tobie.

Notes:

  • Ch 1 at the beginning of each row does not count as st

  • ch 1 and turn at the end of every row unless otherwise marked

  • when stitching together the pieces make sure to stick your hook through BOTH pieces to make sure they’re sewn together and you will stitch in every row and stitch around the panels, applying any special notes indicated in that portion of the pattern

  • I suggest you weave in your ends as you go, especially when working the arms and legs when there’s more frequent color changes

  • always attach yarn with a slip st or join your pieces by stitching into the wrong side of your last row
