PDF CROCHET PATTERN - Gumdrop Dinosaur


Instant Digital Download


IMPORTANT: Please note that this listing is for a CROCHET PATTERN IN PDF FORMAT, NOT FOR THE FINISHED DINOSAUR ITSELF. If you love the dinos but don't crochet, please contact me and I will make one [or more] for you. Finished Dinosaurs are $31 USD apiece.

Hop in your time machines and have your butterfly nets handy! These adorable dinosaurs are looking for new homes safe from potentially deadly asteroids :D Watch out, they multiply!

The spectacular image of one of my dino mommies was taken by the dino mommy's mommy, Michelle Lohutko! Thank you for allowing me to add it! :D

Pattern is in PDF format. Pattern is 5 pages long.
I would not recommend this pattern to beginner crocheters.

My finished dinosaurs turn out about 8" tall (counting the ridges) and 8" long (from snout to tail).

Shipping & Policies

Payment Methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards


When requesting a custom order from one of my patterns, please understand that the price of your physical object will be greater than the listed price on the digital pattern as there is more labor involved.

Digital downloads

+ I purchased this listing believing it was a finished item, not a PDF. What now? +
Send me a message explaining the mixup, I will cancel the transaction and issue a refund. Please be sure to specify what lead you to believe the item was handmade, not digital, so that I may fix the listing accordingly and avoid future confusion.

+ How big is the finished [pattern name]? +
I do not include gauge with any of my patterns because they do not need to fit on any object/body just so. The size of your finished item may not match up with mine, I am a tight stitcher. Pattern listings will usually include rough dimensions in the description based on my finished stuffies.
Most often I use a size G6 (4.5mm) hook and worsted weight (acrylic, such as Red Heart) yarn. My gauge is about 5 sc stitches/inch.

+ I'm new to crocheting, do you think I can make [pattern name]? +
With every pattern purchase, I am here for support. If you have any questions or problems along the way I will help you through it to the best of my abilities. I can provide step-by-step progress shots of a confusing section of a pattern if you are a more visual learner. Don't be afraid to ask me about my patterns, I'm here to help.

+ Do you sell the pattern for your human figures? +
I have plans to make the toddlers available as a pattern, in a build-your-own customizable setup. This is going to take some time as I create different hairstyles, genders, faces etc., but the workbook is in progress.
If you have found my Doctor Who (Tenth Doctor) or BBC Sherlock figures, I do not have patterns for them, they were freeform.


Difficult to follow pattern. Seemed unnecessarily complicated .

I love this pattern so much! Thank you!

I had a blast making this cutie! I put my own little personal touch on it too! The pattern was well written and fairly easy to follow. Can't wait to make more!
