beware on the savannah

Because there’s another dinosaur out there. This one just looking for your approval–he’s a little insecure but ultimately a happy guy.

hi cutie

all trice

Pattern: Trice
Yarn: Knitpicks Crayon, orange
Needles: US 3 Knitpicks circular
Started: 3pm Saturday
Finished: 1am Sunday
Total Time: 5 hours or so, a little more
Modifications:As with Mr. Stegs, I knit this one in the round and stuffed as I went. I’m not sure if I completely forgot the numbers I used for Stegs or if I just stuffed him more full, but he ended up more chubby than Mr. Stegs. And by golly if he isn’t just even cuter as a result!

But so I don’t forget the values I used in case I want to make one again (which I’m sure I will), and if any of you opt to knit it in the round, here’s what I did for casting on and getting to the 10 stitches that the pattern calls to be cast on.

Nose: Cast on 4 stitches. Kf/b in each stitch on next row. Knit one row plain. K1, kf/b, knit to last 2 stitches, kf/b, k1. 10 stitches.
Legs: Cast on 12 stitches, knit 12 rows. (K1, k2tog) around. Knit one row plain. K2tog around. Draw through (no plain row before drawing through).

The horns actually came out ok, so I’m considering adding Mr. Stegs’s tail spikes, but I’m not sure if I want to.

stegs and trice, BFF

Love!

    Hey, they came out awesome. And I love the way that homemade stuffed animals inadvertently gain personality when you sew their faces– they seem so much less zombified than a lot of commercial toys.

    How cute are those two guys together?

    a) Cute
    b) Pretty cute
    c) Very cute
    d) SO SO SO CUTE OH MY GOD MY EYEBALLS MAY MELT FROM THE CUTENESS

    I think we all know the answer.

    I can’t believe you’re not going to make Bronty. It just seems wrong not to. At odds with what nature intends.

    Speaking of love, it looks like there might be a little something brewing between Mr Stegs and Trice? (maybe they knew each other in the way distant past, back in the stash?)
