DINO knits: Ankylosaurus

Number 7 in our dino line-up is the amazing Ankylosaurus, another armored dinosaur like Stegosaurus before him (like, almost 100 million years before him).

Heavy armor plating, or osteoderms, lined Ankylosaurus' back, protecting him from attack in much the same way that the columns of lacy “spikes” on this shawl will fend off the chill.

Worked end-to-end with increases and decreases incorporated into the lace charts, this shawl makes an ideal project for a beginning lace knitter. And if you want a longer scarf, you can simply work more repeats of the center section. After all, Ankylosaurus measured up to 20.5 feet. I don't see why your new neck-cessory couldn't be equally lavish.
