Knitting is dino-mite! I know at some point in your life you have thought to yourself "You know, I love sweaters and what-have-you, but all I REALLY want to knit is dinosaurs." Since I am a mind reader, I have made that a possibility for you! I mean seriously, how flipping awesome is a knitted dinosaur? Awesome enough that you are going to buy this pattern and get cast on today! See, I really am a mind reader. Be sure to check back soon too, I will have a couple more dinosaurs patterns coming out in May and June this year!

This knitting pattern from Danger Crafts will show you how to knit Basil the Boogie-Woogie Brontosaurus out of your choice of yarn. Since it doesn't take much yarn to knit this guy, this is a great stash busting project for all those times you've bought one ball of yarn because it was pretty, or on sale, or both. This pattern is very fun and once you knit one brontosaurus, you will find you want to knit a whole herd!
