T-Rex Pattern

I chose this pattern for the eyes, so most of these photos center around the best pattern for eyes I've ever seen. The skull:

Okay, I'm gonna stop here and explain why I don't like crocheted eyes. See those unclean lines? I think they take away from the emotional expression in what eyes should look like.

The answer? Chain stitch an eye color around the rough edges! BRILLIANT!!

Add points of light:
Continue stitching in the round, creating an eyeball. . .

And you've got the perfect child safe eyes for a crocheted animal.


I'm planning on using this practice again in the future. It's a beautiful thing.
