A shawl-wearing experience 65 million years in the making! Shawlasauraus is worked with a combination of lace, garter stitch and short rows for a finished shape based loosely on a stegosauraus. This funky shawl is worked from the bottom up for a unique statement piece, but watch out, he comes with attitude!
