Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit, purl
  • Arched Cable stitch - instructions included

Pattern Description:

Knowing little boys love dinosaurs, I first found the green yarn that yelled DINOSAURS at me. For the finished blanket, I wanted move away from the simple end repeats of the designs that are found in my earlier patterns. Seeing the Arched Cable stitch in a pattern book solved my dilemma.

The arched cable repeats inside the inner and outer seed stitch borders, creates the perfect field for the 4 dynamic dinosaurs. The dinosaurs are patterned so the are situated diagonally in the corners of this field.

Wouldn't your little guy like to snuggle up in this blanket?
