FO: Dinosaur Sweater for my son

As always, I am popping in to say hi and show my last FO. Our family is a bit crazy about dinosaurs so there you go. This version (it's a second sweater with the same pattern) is a bit less detailed due to gauge but it's sooo warm. Also, the original sweater has brown instead of black and looks more like a silhouette with the sunset on the background. Well, that's what I was going for anyway :)

Since I mentioned the original design, that's what it looks like. I am debating leaving it as a vest... What do you think, sleeves or no sleeves?

What a cute sweater. Great job on it. And your son looks absolutely adorable in it.

What kid wouldn't love a dinosaur sweater like that? He is too cute! Well done, as always. Thanks for sharing.

OMG that is adorable and so is your son!
My opinion on sleeves is if it's cold enough to wear a warm sweater you're probably going to want sleeves. It looks cute either way though.

I missed the sleeves question. Sleeves!

Beautiful sweater, Olha! :heart::heart::heart:

Handsome son!

I vote for sleeves.

A superb sweater, Olha! Lovely work! Looks like you block your work, too!

My vote: add the sleeves to the brown-pumpkin-white 'vest'. Without sleeves it looks overall like a woman's sleeveless tank, something about the shape of it, regardless of the looks feminine.

Oh, how very cute, Olha!

I vote for sleeves, too. Sounds like you need them! Now, if you were in a nice, mostly-warm place (like Texas), I would say skip them. But you're not. So, yeah, sleeves!

Oh, I missed the sleeves question as well. And I vote for sleeves along with the rest. Still. Great sweater.
