All the Dinosaurs Feared the T-Rex!
Here's my little Deadpool rendition of the super popular Timothy the T-rex pattern available from BluephoneStudios' etsy shop. It's one paid patterns I didn't mind spending money on. I followed the pattern, using red for the main color and black for the alternate color. I did not add safety eyes because I wanted to add my own applique ones. The black part is made by making 2 half circles and then single crocheting around the moon shape and the white is a simple 6sc in a magic ring. I also started off the hands and feet with black and switched to red about halfway through.
Of course, Deadpool needs his little friend as well. The unicorn was made from this super cute and simple pony pattern from Allaboutami. I made a few alterations to this pattern as well. I wanted a clean color change for the feet so I used a method where you slip around with the new color and then sc in the BLO of those slip stitches. I also changed the hair to a simple series of curls made by chaining and then working 2 sc in each chain. I think I chained maybe 15 to start. The horn is made with size 10 crochet thread and a simple pattern: 4sc in mr, 4sc, then increase once in the next round and work even in the next. Then you alternate adding one stitch to alternate rounds so it slowly grows. I worked this part in continuous rounds to avoid a seam.
All done. Now they are special pals!
