What is it with little boys and dinosaurs?
My toddler son was obsessed by the creatures.
He later moved on to knights and pirates, but “diddors” will always have a special place in his heart.
At 21, he may no longer carry a tiny stegosaurus in his pocket (though I wouldn’t put it past him) but I reckon he will appreciate some warm dinosaur socks this winter.
Red or green? Which do you prefer?
One of each!
They are not quite matching, as there was a knot just past the heel turn of sock 2 and I didn’t quite get the stripes re-aligned.
The difference is more noticeable at the toes.
But really? I don’t think anyone will be looking at his toes when there are dinosaurs dancing round his ankles!
Pattern: The chart comes from the Brachiosockus pattern, but I adapted it to be top-down over 72 stitches, so the dinosaurs are the only thing these socks have in common with the original. I have written extensive notes on my Ravelry page for these.
Yarn: Online Supersocke 100 Paradise Color for the self-striping background; Online Supersocke 100 in plain black for heels and toes; Yarn Yard Toddy sock for the red and green – leftovers from FL’s Wallace socks and my Fred and George socks.
This is the last pair in my Summer of Socks season. I have cast on for the Woodcutter’s Socks, but other projects are taking up my knitterly energies right now, including some exciting test-knitting on the horizon – woo hoo! Looking forward to that! :)
