We are KAL this sweater, come join us!

This circular yoke sweater is perfect for future paleontologists and young dinosaur enthusiasts. Diplodocus is worked top down, and includes instructions for a button-tab at neck in the baby sizes so there is no trouble getting the sweater over the head. Sweater is worked entirely in one piece, seamlessly. Colorwork is charted and worked stranded, in the round. Shown in size 4.

Yarn note: My experiences with the yarn I used are 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 its best to do some hand-felting on the wrong side during blocking.

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