DINO knits: Apatosaurus

Next up in our Parade of Dinosaurs is Apatosaurus, or perhaps Brachiosaurus or the controversial Brontosaurus, if that's your preference. They're similarly shaped enough you could say they all inspired this dinoshawl.

Known for its long neck and tail, the Apatosaurus’ silhouette lends itself nicely to a sort of scarf-shawl hybrid design. This is probably the most dinosaur-y of the DINO knits patterns. Subtle, it is not, but hey, that's what makes it so awesome, am I right?

The stitch pattern is simple garter stitch, but there are plenty of short-rows, increases, and decreases to hold your interest. And I can totally see this stitcheded up in bright, fun colors for some fantastic scarves for the kiddies.
