DINO knits: Triceratops

Hooray, it's Friday! That means it's time for another dinosaur shawl! This week, I'm highlighting Triceratops.

A huge crest and three large horns made Triceratops one of the most recognizable dinosaurs. So too is this shawl distinctive with its six-pointed silhouette and stockinette stitch horns on an expanding mesh background.

Worked primarily from charts, the pattern begins at the center, first forming the middle horn as the simple mesh emanates from its sides. Once that horn is complete, the easily memorized mesh will give your brain a break for a bit before beginning the upper horns and progressing into the garter stitch diamonds along the edge of the crest.
