My First Knitted Dinosaur

Posted by Evelyn Mervine

Knitted dinosaur likes my volcano mug.

In my office this morning I have a new friend– the first knitted dinosaur I made from Jean Greenhowe’s dinosaur knitting patterns. I mostly knitted this dinosaur on Thanksgiving Day, and I just fnished him up last night. I’m quite proud– I’m really a novice knitter, but I think the dinosaur turned out quite well despite a few mistakes here and there. I’m not exactly sure of the dinosaur species. The knitting book calls this dinosaur pattern “The Pink Spotted Dinosaur,” so I suppose my creation could be called the “Purple and Yellow Spotted Dinosaur.” I’m not quite finished yet– I still want to knit this little guy a miniature Christmas scarf. After I finish decking out Purple and Yellow Spotted Dinosaur for the holidays, I’ll move on to the T-Rex or the flying dinosaur. However, I might not have much time for knitting until Christmas… much work to do!

Here’s a few more pictures:
