Rawr! Two triceratops face off in this adorable raglan sweater and matching hat. Purple is a perfectly fun color for dinosaurs. But if you prefer a more traditional green dinosaur or even an aqua, mustard, or pink one, the Bella Cash palette has you covered.
Sweater body and sleeves are knit in the round from the bottom up and are then worked flat in rows during raglan shaping. Body cast-on begins at center back. The hat is knit in one piece in the round from the bottom up.
