Short Description: What do you call a Stegosaurus with carrots in his ears? Anything you want, he can't hear you! Now you can knit your very own stegosaurus (with or without carrots in his ears)! I know, a stegosaurus is like the coolest thing to knit ever, right? I have continued with my knitter mind reading, haven't I? This knitting pattern from Danger Crafts will show you how to knit Sherman the Square Dancing Stegosaurus out of your choice of yarn. Since it doesn't take much yarn to knit this guy, this is a great stash busting project for all those times you've bought one ball of yarn because it was pretty, or on sale, or both. Or, if you have little bits of leftovers that need using up. This pattern is very fun and once you knit one stegosaurus, you will find you want to knit a whole herd!
