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?

I’m a mid-western farm girl transplanted to the West Coast. I learned to knit in my 8th grade home-ec class. My first major project as a beginner was making a lacy knit stole for my Grandmother. After a long hot summer of knitting, it won first prize at the county 4-H fair and a second place at the Indiana State Fair. I’ve continued to knit off and on for over 40+ years. I prefer simpler projects like blankets and scarves because I’ve don’t like sewing pieces together. Semi-retirement has given me the time to explore new ways to be creative with my knitting. Hope you like what you see. Happy Knitting.
