About the designer

Taught by my mother and grandmother, I’ve been knitting for as long as I can remember. I love designing all sorts of animals and other creatures. It’s fun and the best way I know of to relax!

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Hektor is knitted in the round using the stitches knit, lifted increases, slip stitch over and knit 2 together.

Pattern Description:

Tyrannosaurs may have a fearsome reputation, but little baby T-rexes like Hektor are actually very sweet. Much like an eager but adorably clumsy puppy, who stumbles over his own slightly too big feet in his excitement.
