stan the dinosaur

My nephew was six earlier in the year. I couldn't resist knitting up this friendly little fellow as a belated birthday present. Stan the dino was a dream to knit up and I particularly enjoyed making the moss stitch spines which were knit in a long strip from the head to the tail. At times, the pattern was a little tricky to follow, so although simple, this is probably not a suitable project for a beginner. 

Although my nephew would probably have preferred me to knit him something from Star Wars, he still seemed rather delighted with his new friend, playing with him all afternoon!

pattern: roaring dinosaur by Zoë Mellor (Knitted Toys, Hamlyn)
needles: 3.25mm
yarn: thrifted acrylic mix (approx 100g); washable stuffing
