Here’s the history buff coming out in me and wanting to share with you. Every February 14th millions of us around the world celebrate this day by exchanging gift, flowers and tons of cards. But just who is this St. Valentine? One legend is he was a priest back in and around 269 A.D. During a bloody and brutal time under the rule of “Claudius the Cruel” he was having a hard time to get soldiers to follow him because they did not want to leave their family and loved ones. So he forbid any further marriages. A priest in Rome, Saint Valentine defied Claudius and performed marriages in secret. When they discovered what Saint Valentine was doing, they beat him to death and cut off his head. But before this, during Saint Valentine’s imprisonment it is legend that he fell in love with the jailers daughter who visited him. Before his death on February 14 it is alleged that he wrote her a letter and signed it “From Your Valentine”. This day was set aside to honor him.

Thanks for stopping by at How To Crochet A Beanie. Happy Valentine’s Day to all.

One of my weaknesses in crocheting are those items for babies. They are the ultimate model for your creations. We’ve been blessed with an adorable little angel in our family this past year and everything I see, I have to make one for her. I even did some Dinosaur Crochet for her. I crocheted a beanie in hot pink (shame one me, I didn’t get a picture) and adorned the crown with black spikes. Sooooo cute! Very similar to the photo below. Change up you colors to fit your little ones personality. The yarns in the fluorescent or hot colors are great and fun to work with.

I made this Dinosaur Crochet Beanie for my nephew Fuzz. This fits his personality very well. Avid hunter and cut up! Love him. As you can see I simply crochet a beanie in the camo colors and spiked his beanie in a lighter brown color. Like I said before, mix it up. Build your project with the colors that best fit your child’s personality.

As you can see, it doesn’t matter how young or old you are.  Everyone loves dinosaurs.   They will put a smile on anyone’s face.  Here’s some fun facts about the ever mysterious dinosaur from “Science Kids”

    • The word dinosaur comes from the Greek language and means  ‘terrible lizard’. The word was coined by English paleontologist Richard Owen  in 1842 and was meant to refer to Dinosaurs impressive size rather than their  scary appearance.

    • Dinosaurs ruled the Earth for over 160 million years, from  the Triassic period around 230 million years ago through the Jurassic period  and until the end of the Cretaceous period around 65 million years ago.

    • The time period from 250 million years ago until around 65  million years ago is known as the Mesozoic Era. It is often referred to as the  Age of the Dinosaurs because most dinosaurs developed and became extinct during  this time.

    • It is believed that dinosaurs lived on Earth until around 65  million years ago when a mass extinction occurred.

    • Scientists believe that the event leading to the extinction  may have been a massive asteroid impact or huge volcanic activity. Events such  as these could have blocked out sunlight and significantly changed the Earth’s  ecology.

    • The first dinosaur to be formally named was the Megalosaurus, back in 1824.

    • A person who studies dinosaurs is known as a paleontologist.

    • Rather than being carnivores (meat eaters), the largest  dinosaurs such as the Brachiosaurus and Apatosaurus were actually herbivores  (plant eaters).

    • To help fight meat eaters such as the Allosaurus or Spinosaurus,  many plant eaters had natural weapons at their disposal. Examples of this  include the spikes on the tail of the Stegosaurus and the three horns attached  to the front of the Triceratops’s head shield.

    • Pterodactyls are not dinosaurs, they were flying  reptiles that lived during the age of dinosaurs but by definition they do not  fall into the same category. The same goes for water based reptiles such as  Plesiosaurs.

    • Birds descended from a type of dinosaurs known as theropods.

    • Despite being long extinct, dinosaurs are frequently  featured in the media. One of the more memorable examples of this is Michael  Crichton’s 1990 book Jurassic Park.  Adapted to movie in 1993, the story features cloned dinosaurs brought to life  with the help of DNA found in mosquitoes trapped in amber.
