Hello, friends! Earlier today I added Timothee Tyrannosaurus’ pattern to my dinosaur collection and in the spirit of the season, I made him some cute holiday accessories: a Santa hat (with fur trim!) and some twinkle lights!
If you want to get into the holiday spirt but just don’t have the time to make full holiday projects, this is a fun way to spruce up your regular amigurumi.
Let’s get into it!
- The hat is worked in continuous rounds from the top down.
- Faux fur yarn is used to create the trim and pompom.
- I used 7 various colours of worsted weight yarn that I had in my stash to create the lights (red, blue, orange, yellow, pink, purple, green) and a dark forest green shade for the wire.
Let’s get started! (Or Pin/Shop for later!)
If you’d prefer a downloadable or printable version of this pattern, an inexpensive, formatted, and ad-free PDF can be purchased HERE or through the “Shop It” button above, or on Ravelry! You can also find the pattern on Ribblr!

- 5mm hook for fur yarn.
- Any worsted weight yarn in red for hat;
- White faux fur yarn for brim and pompom of hat;
- Any worsted weight yarn in dark green for wire;
- Various colours in worsted weight for lights (I used 7 colours).
- Tapestry needle.
