Toddler Dinosaur Hood

hiro2

A dress-up dinosaur hood to fit up to an 18-inch head. Saw tooth trim is knitted and applied separately. Note that the original version was knit from now discontinued Reynold’s Olé Olé, an Aran weight cotton yarn that made a soft fabric with enough body to stand up in the standing saw tooth trim. In the meantime, knitters seem to have had good luck with Lion Brand Wool-Ease and Knit Picks Shine Worsted.
