When I was a kid I LOVED dinosaurs. I would practice saying their long names and memorize little tid-bits about each one. Alright, I was a bit of nerd! One year my family went on a road trip to Drumheller and the Royal Tyrrell Dinosaur Museum. My brothers and I were in heaven! A few years ago I took a trip with my cousin and it was just as magical as I remembered.
Now I read books about dinosaurs to Hunter and Jones and one day soon we will take them to Tyrrell too. Until then knitted dinosaur toys will have to suffice! Knitting at Knoon has many wonderful patterns for knitted toys (like Feathers and Safari Friends) but the Prehistoric Pals are easily my favorite. Kathleen knit up a great Brontosaurus in Noro Kureyon and it was just perfect!
Toys can be knit in pretty much any yarn but I have a few faves. Cascade 220 is a great price and comes in so very many colors, so it works well. Anina likes Spud and Chloe Sweater for their range of colors and washability (toss ‘er in the machine as long as your stuffing allows). Of course there is Noro for a self striped toy, skip changing colors and let the yarn do the work!
We have a wide range of Knitting at Knoon patterns along with many yarn options so drop by to create a Stega of your very own!
