Triceratops Amigurumi Pattern

Finding dinosaur amigurumi is quite difficult. Free crochet dinosaur patterns, in particular, don’t usually look pretty. The crochet dinosaur pattern that I will share today looks very nice. This dinosaur is a triceratops. I remember it being a pretty strong dinosaur. In fact, it is one of the rare dinosaurs that can fight T-rex. Its construction is extremely simple. I just think the head part can be challenging. That’s why it’s an amigurumi pattern that I can recommend to beginners.
