I made this dinosaur sweater for my grandson. He loves dinosaurs. I found the pattern in The Just Kidding Collection book by Elsebeth Lavold.

Thanks, it was fun to make and it fits!!
Nice work! I'm sure he'll be very pleased! I also saw the dinosaur blanket that you posted. It is adorable, too!
You do some very nice work
thx so much for sharing this...have been looking for a good dinosaur chart and the book info you included is just the thing...i have already ordered and plan to make in cotton for my 5 yr old grandson...he lives in san diego and they don't need too many warm sweaters there but i'm sure he'll enjoy the dinosaur, no matter the weather....thanks again....
ooh, my grandson would love this sweater, well done.
VERY nice!!
You knit beautifully. I've enjoyed all the pics you've posted today. Who's the lucky recipient of all these gorgeous items?

Thanks so much. And it fits!!!
Thanks so much.
Thank you.
Try to find the Cool Wool yarn specified in the pattern. This yarn is perfect for where your grandson lives and it doesn't itch. Watch the turning row in the beginning of the pattern for the foldline. After you CO your stitches, start the first row of st st with a purl row. Your 8th row will be a k row. When you turn your work, the p side will be facing you, then you k this row for the foldline. I did not use a rolled neckline--didn't really think a rolled neckline was for a boy. About this yarn: it tends to stretch when you wash it, but it will retain its shape as it is dries. Since st st tends to curl in, I blocked the pieces first then put them together. I also tacked in the seams with embroidery thread (the colors match better than regular sewing thread).
Part II--don't forget your sweater bag for machine washing.
Thanks very much.
Thanks so much and I spoil him rotten. Then I give him back to has parents!!
Thanks so much.
