DINO knits: Tyrannosaurus

No collection of dinosaurs would be complete without the awe-inspiring Tyrannosaurus, am I right? This "tyrant lizard" terrorized its Cretaceous comrades and outlasted most of them, being among the last dinosaurs living before that fateful day when an enormous asteroid came catapulting toward Earth and wiped out three-quarters of the planet's plant and animal life. Poor Rexy.

Arguably the most famous dinosaur of all, Tyrannosaurus Rex may have been a little lacking in the arm department, but he compensated with a big toothy grin that would win your heart (and then devour it).

A simple center-out, crescent-shaped shawl of seed stitch mimics the rough hide and is finished off with short-rows and a pattern of eyelets that form that brilliant smile.
