What’s with the T-Rex song title? Because I finished my own little T-Rex!
He is knit from Rebecca Danger’s Terrence the Tap Dancing T-Rex pattern. I used a skein of Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock in the “Lucky” colorway, on a U.S. size 2 needle.
Just a couple of mods — I elected not to knit the striped chest piece because the yarn I used has a bit of a striping pattern in it.
After the body was half done, I knit the tail, rather than wait until after the body was complete and stuffed. I also knit the arms and legs at this point. Once the tail was done, I stuffed it and attached the legs to the body, and started stuffing the body. Once the body was complete, I sewed on the arms before finishing stuffing the body. Then, on to the head, stuffing the head, and embroidering on the face. That’s it!
This is intended as a baby gift for a baby boy due any time now.
And now I am knitting a bunny for the baby’s big sister. This one. It should be complete by my next blog post.
