Shown in Adult

Children’s S: Ages approx. 5-7, 5” palm circumference

Materials:

  • Set of 5 US 7/4.5 mm dpns
  • Stitch marker
  • Stitch holder or waste yarn

Yarn:

MC: 150-200 yards worsted/aran weight yarn, green (sample used Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride)
CC: 20 yards worsted weight yarn, red (sample used Ella Rae Classic)
CC2: 10 yards worsted weight yarn, off-white (sample used reconned thrift store sweater yarn)

Okay, the T-Rex is actually an allosaur, as astute observers with knowledge of dinos will have noticed. The two are very similar, but they appear in different eras of dino history.
