Brad the Brachiosaurus

I got together with a few other Lettuce Crafters post vaccination this spring and we dyed up some yarn. The two bottom skeins were dyed by @curiousfae, the purple was dyed with @gozer and the others I dyed myself.

I wanted to do something special with the yarn and used a pattern from the book Dinosaurs, Mammoths and More Prehistoric Amigurumi by Maja Hansen that I received for my birthday from @gozer to make her a little thank you gift.

Meet Brad the Brachiosaurus.
According to the book: Brad is not just being fashion-forward with his sweater, he really tends to get a cold, even in hot weather, so he often wears a turtleneck to keep his long neck warm.

I love him so much. He is my wfh buddy because he sits on my office desk to keep me company. We have had some in-depth conversations about my co-workers. Ha! Thank you so much @Kwality570. Brad is beyond loved! He is so adorable. I love the colors you chose and the little hat you added. Makes him feel more stylish, at least that is what he told me. :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
