FO Friday: Sweater for the Little Guy

Yarn: Paton's Classic Wool (Less than 2 skeins for a size 4T sweater)
Needles: Size 4
Pattern: Bottom-up Raglan, using Elizabeth's Percentage System

After knitting, I went to the store and bought a sheet each of about 9 colors of felt. When I got home with them, I asked him to pick out which one he wanted his T-rex to be.

I was expecting him to pick red, but the understated olive green is actually a much better choice. A button for the eye adds just a bit of dimension.

Do you know how hard it is to take a picture of a little boy's sweater when he's busy trying to play in the backyard in his new sweater?

It's pretty hard.

But at least you can tell this little sweater's going to get a lot of wear.

I blame the dinosaur.

Linking up with Tamis Amis this week. Have fun checking out more FO's!


  1. I love it! The felt dinosaur is fabulous. I agree, olive green works really well with the blue.

  2. The sweater is fantastic and looks wonderful on!

  3. Love the dinosaur! And the model looks very happy with it.
