Triceratops Baby Rainbow

I was recently challenged to design a rainbow amigurumi for Pride Month. Until I started googling, I had no idea there were so many amigurumi animals done in a rainbow theme. The frill on the neck of a triceratops is a perfect place to put a rainbow, and the beautiful colors make this cute little guy more of a baby rather than a fierce predator. What do you think? Just look at that cute little face!

 

Triceratops Baby measures approximately 11” long (including tail) by 5” tall.

Worsted weight yarn
