Latest news and updates from June

dinosaur crochet patterns are here!

My Brachiosaurus, Stegosaurus and Triceratops crochet patterns are now available to purchase individually or as a value-priced multipack from the PlanetJune shop.

With no colour changes, they work up quickly, and at 9-11″ long and nice and chunky, they would make great children’s toys. Who doesn’t know a little boy or girl who’d be delighted with a set of these to play with?

I’ve also been making some changes in the PlanetJune store:

Eyes: Now you can conveniently shop for the perfect eyes for your creations while you’re picking out your patterns, with my range of black animal eyes available in all sizes.

Custom AmiDogs sets: This feature has been requested a lot! Now you can mix and match to create your own AmiDogs set of three patterns for the same price as the standard sets.

New categories: I’ve recategorized my patterns so it’s easier to find what you’re looking for.

Donationware patterns: All the donationware patterns are now available in the shop, so, in future, if you’d like the printable PDF of any of my free patterns, you can send me your donation in the same way as a pattern order, and then download your pattern(s) immediately.

So please feel free to take a look around the shop and see if anything catches your eye!

    Have you tried a T-Rex or pterodctyl?

    A friend had seen some of my crocheted animals and asked if I had any dinosaures. I had the Stegasaures one and made it in a green (her son’s favorite color) and a good color for a Stegasaures too! I used June’s eyes on it and he loved it and took it to preschool the next day and sleeps with it too.
    Great pattern!!

    I just love these! I’ve been looking for something just like this. In fact, I have been trying to order these off your website, but have been unable to get it to work; I keep loosing the link.

    Ariel: Good thinking! I do have plans to make a second set of dinosaurs – hopefully some time next year – and there’ll definitely be at least one carnivore in the next set 🙂

  8. Ariel said

    you should design some carnivores….I would die for a crochet velociraptor…

    Worth learning how to crochet for!

  15. TOO CUTE! I’m looking forward to my nephew’s (or my niece’s – I don’t discriminate) inevitable development of deep dino obsession… at which point he or she will receive THESE! 🙂

    You do such good work June!

    A hopefully helpful idea for the new eyes category, if you can make a little comparison illustration to help customers visualize the diameter of the eyes, it may make it easier for folks to envision them for their projects! 🙂
