The huge sail protruding from Dimetrodon’s spine practically begged to become a knitted shawl. Ribbed “bones” extend vertically from the long cast on edge, while a lacy “skin” fills in the gaps. Stepped decreases give the shawl its bell shape, and like its namesake’s sail, this shawl is completely reversible!
