This circular yoke sweater is perfect for future paleontologists and young dinosaur enthusiasts. Diplodocus is worked from the top down, and includes instructions for a button-tab at neck in the baby sizes for easy dressing. Sweater is worked entirely in one piece, seamlessly. Colorwork is charted and worked stranded, in the round. Shown in Size 5. Check out the Cheery Color Set for more chart options that work with this design! Pattern has been updated 11.30.18 to tweak sizing, primarily adding extra length, adding metrics & a makeover for the latest TT format.

Yarn note: My experience with the yarn I used is that it blooms to worsted gauge! Test knitters have also used a variety of popular worsted weight yarns for the pattern. Additionally, I recommend using a natural fiber that will have a firm hold and/or felt. Acrylics will be slippery, and the floats are long enough that it’s best to do some hand-felting on the wrong side during blocking. Alternatively, you can catch the floats on the WS of your work.

Techniques: Stranded colorwork, short rows, knitting in the round, picking up (very few) stitches
