Old-fashioned playtime will never go extinct with this collection of huggable dinosaurs and their friendly reptilian sidekicks.

With just a few basic crochet stitches and the imaginative designs of Megan Kreiner, author of the best-selling Christmas Ornaments to Crochet, crafters can create an entire herd of cuddly Stegosauruses, a flock of flying Pterodactyls, or a pod of swimming Plesiosauruses. The extensive how-to section of Dinosaurs to Crochet provides a robust overview with beautifully illustrated step-by-step crochet stitches, helpful construction techniques, and finishing tips to ensure each and every project will please even the most discerning paleontologist-in-training.
