View Full Version : FO: Stuffed Dinosaur

06-19-2008, 03:06 PM
So I started knitting this 5yrs ago and gave up cuz I ran out of yarn and it was a difficult project for me. I had no idea when I started how big it was meant to be. (I admit it I don't always focus on the details in the directions :aww: )I decided to give it anouther go when I found the pieces on the bottom of my closet. My 9yo DS remembered that I had meant for it to be for him and he was excited for me to actually finish it all be it years later. It is far from perfect and it was a real learning tool for me. My other DS and DD want one now too so I am sure theirs will be an improvement. Here it is....oh and my DS got to help design him so I am not taking credit for color combinations and he was very excited his build a bear clothes fit it so that will be nice to cover up some of the flaws. LOL

Thanks for the comments, I'm sorry Iforgot to metnion the pattern. I got the pattern from an old Family Circle Knitting magazine Winter 97/98 issue. They had the Brachiosaurus and a Triceratops too. They suggested "Astra" by Patons yarn but I used whatever leftovers I had.

It's not always easy to finish up a cold project. So congratulations on that. The colors are fun. It's great that DS got in on the designing. That makes it even more "his". That dinosaur is a real smile producer.
