Crochet Dinosaur Hat

I made this cute dinosaur hat based on a stegosaurus.  It has two rows of spikes and a small yarn dinosaur embellishment

The hat pattern is the same as the monkey hat pattern with ear flaps posted in September.  

You can find the pattern for the spikes on the Boy Trifecta Blog.

I decided to try adding an embroidery using the same yarn.  
First, I found a simple clipart image and printed it out in the size I wanted.  
Then, I traced the image onto some stabilizer/interfacing.  I just used some that was laying around my house, but ideally, you should use some tear away fabric so that you don't have to cut it away with scissors.  I think it worked out rather well for my first attempt.

I hope this inspires you to try adding a creative twist to your next project!
