This summer I went to the cinema for the awesome movie “Jurassic World”, and fell in love with the Raptor Squad. That’s why I decided to make a velociraptor on my vacation with my dad. We went touring with our camper though Austria, Italy and Switzerland. (It was really nice, I totally recommend you going there!) Of course I had the great opportunity to make some awesome pictures with my new raptor there 😉



The pattern:

You will need the following:

  • a crochet needle with matching yarn;
  • a stitch marker;
  • a darling needle;
  • a pair of safety eyes.

Sew the parts into place. You can use my pictures for placement. Sew the front legs on with the small toes facing the inside.

And that’s it! I hope you like him!

    Hi! I’m attempting to make this and I’m having no luck! Still working on the tail! Can I ask what size hook you used?

    I made a Velociraptor and it came out great. I made a head and neck using a left over piece of bulky yarn. The body I made exactly from the pattern out of 4 weight Lion’s Brand Vanna’s Choice “Dusty Green” using a 2.75 hook. The legs I made from a darker green. The back legs were exactly from the pattern here. For the front legs I modified the pattern a bit and I added simple three toe pieces for each front leg.
    Front Leg: MR 6. Row 1: in Back Loop Only sc around. Row 2: sc, inc, 2 sc, inc, sc (8). Rows 3 to 5: sc around. Row 6: 3 sc, dec, sc, dec, sl st, Fasten Off, leave end for sewing.
    Toes: ch 5, sl st 4, ch 6, sl st 5, ch 5 sl st 4.
