the 2nd increase. Count 1 2 holes after the first eye and place the 2nd eye. If you want the
sunken eye look, do not place the backs of the eyes on until row 2 7.

Now for the eyes. Stuff the head well. Cut a long piece of yarn and remove the eyes. Place the
needle in the hole where the first eye was and thread the needle into a hole next to the eye
hole. Go back and forth between each eye hole repe ating the process from the first eye. Pull
slightly on the yarn after going through each hole. Do this about 3 times on each side until you
reach the look you want. Follow the pictures for help. There is also a youtube video I hav e for
extra help on this p rocess.

Helpful Tips:


Exact Colors and Brand of Yarn Used:
1. Purple: Red Heart Lavend er
2. Gre en: Red Heart Spring Green
3. Pink: Red Heart Baby Pink
4. Yellow: Red Heart Daffo dil



You can use d ifferent eye and nose sizes. You might have to adjust the placements if you
change the sizes.

You can use different hook sizes and weights of yarn. It will just change the size of your
pte rodactyl and you might need to adjust eye and nose placement.

How y ou stuff matters! The type of stuffing you u se, how you stuff, all this matters on how your
pterodactyl turns out. I prefer Polyfil stuffing but you can use other types.
