YARN - The After Party 105 - Trico the Triceratops

By Halime Ozel

Halime Özel created Trico Triceratops using Scheepjes Softfun - a wonderful all-round yarn that’s gentle to the touch and wonderfully soft. Isn’t Trico the most huggable herbivore a dinosaur fan could wish for? To create your own, you’ll begin by making the body parts separately. The spiralling amigurumi technique is used for most pieces before crocheting the frill in rows. Assemble, stuff, add the features and marvel as this colourful character comes to life!
