Dino Spike Crochet Pattern


I sort of think it does. Or at least it seems so to me. And I've definitely got the crochet bug these days.

I've got a little monster running around my house these days, so I thought I'd create a hat to reflect his wild insane out-of-control hilariously adorable personality.

Of course, this one modeling the hat, he's not a monster at all. He's just the only one who will sit long enough for me to take a picture.

I mean seriously, how can you not love those eyes?


In case you have any little monsters that you would like to make this hat for, here's the dino spike pattern. You can add it to the top of any hat really, but I mostly use this pattern from Inner Hooker. The pattern below is just for the spikes on top. 

Hook: 5mm (H)
Yarn: Any worsted weight is fine - I used Wool-Ease.

Mark the first stitch in each round. You're crocheting in a spiral, so don't join your rounds.

Round 1: Make a magic loop/ring, and do 6 single crochets in the loop. Pull tight. (6 sc)
Round 2: Single crochet around (6 sc)
Round 3: 2 single crochet in first stitch, 1 sc in next stitch - repeat around (9 sc)
Round 4: Single crochet in each stitch (9 sc)
Round 5: 2 single crochet in first stitch, 1 sc in next stitch - repeat around (14 sc)
Round 6: Single crochet around (14 sc)
Round 7: Single crochet around (14 sc)
Round 8: Single crochet in 1st and 2nd stitches, 2 single crochet in third - repeat around  (18 sc)
Round 9: Single crochet around (18 sc)
Round 10: Single crochet around (18 sc)
Round 11: Single crochet around (18 sc)
Fasten off, leaving at least a foot or so of yarn to sew to the top of your hat.


Feel free to make these for yourself, friends, charity, whatever. If you want to sell things some dino hats made from this pattern, I would love it if you would link back to the blog.

Happy crocheting!

  18. I made a hat with brim on it for a child but the mom wants a small dinosaur that can be pinned to it so she can pin it on other things. Do you have any small flat dinosaur patterns that would fit on a childs hat. (sorta like a flower put on a girls hat)

    Thank you

  21. Thank you! Had fun with this one. I made seven spikes in graduated sizes...just stopping a few rows short of the full pattern. http://www.ravelry.com/projects/kyriosity/dinosaur-spike

  22. Thanks for posting this! I have made all the hat and the spikes for my son and I am about to start one for my little 6 month old. I have a question on sewing the spikes to the hat? What have you found to be the best method. I am still new to crochet and when I tried sewing the first spike on, I just felt like it was wobbly and not really secure. If you could get me any pointers I would be so grateful.

    1. Hi Cosmetic Candy,
      You tube has a nice tutorial video on magic circles. They are handy and I like that they cinch in and leave no hole. Just search magic circle crochet.
