Triceratops Dinosaur Baby Blanket
The dinosaur baby blanket is my latest crochet pattern from the folding baby blankets collection.
What a great idea! A cuddly warm blanket that the baby can play with and then it folds into a decorative dino toy or decoration for the nursery.
This blanket is perfect for a minimalist home, it’s gender-neutral and looks gorgeous when folded and rested on the baby’s cot.

Dino Baby Blanket PLAYLIST (Check back, more videos added)
I have made quite a few designs since I posted this one, all suitable for different nursery themes, from woodland animals to farm ones, and more exotic ones like the unicorn baby blanket.
Why is it a 3in1 Dinosaur Baby Blanket?
The 3in1 folding dino baby blanket acts as a blanket, a toy, and a decoration for your loved one’s room.
It is a blanket that keeps your child warm and snuggly.
If you travel, your baby stays warm and entertained while playing with the dino toy attached to the blanket. At home, use this blanket as a play mat.
When not in use, fold it back and it instantly transforms into a cute animal decoration that you can rest on the armchair or the side of the cot in the nursery.
The Perfect Baby Shower Gift
The triceratops baby blanket will make a wonderful baby shower gift that can be used year after year as a blanket, toy or playmat.
It was designed to fit in a dinosaur-themed nursery or child room, you can adjust the colors to fit in any color scheme or gender.
This pattern is suitable for crocheters who are comfortable reading a crochet pattern and have attempted amigurumi before.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
I am stuck on this pattern, can you help?
Every pattern you purchase from my shop comes with help and support. I will help you get unstuck and finish your project, so you can buy with confidence and try something new.
If you are completely new to crocheting, I recommend starting with beginner patterns and build up your confidence, pay attention to the skill level of my patterns and buy only if you are already at that level.
NOTE: The free version of this pattern does not come with the same help, just because it’s not fair on those who support me and bought this pattern.
That doesn’t mean that you can’t contact me if there is a mistake or something unclear with this pattern, it simply means that you will need to learn the stitches, the techniques and learn how to read a pattern on your own.
Can I crochet this blanket using aran yarn (worsted yarn #4) ?
Yes you can! The body parts will come out a little larger than my own, but still in the same shape, use a smaller hook than recommended for aran yarn to keep the size smaller. The blanket can be adjusted by simply crocheting more rounds.
Do I have to use the same yarn brand as you to get the same result?
No, you don’t. You can use any brand you like, but pay attention to the yardage, different brands have different yardage.
Can I change the size of the blanket?
Yes, you can. Each pattern can be adjusted by simply changing the number of rounds you make.
Can I sell items made with your pattern?
Yes, you can. Please check the copyright section for more details.
