Your chances of winning the mother / father / grandmother of the year award will probably be pretty great if you knit this up for your favorite dinosaur fan.
Triceratopp is a simple raglan sweater, knitted from the bottom up. The neckline is shaped by knitting back an forth whilst decreasing stitches. Finally the neckline is folded and sewn to the inside. The wide body and narrow sleeves makes a cool statement, pair it with a pair of tight fitting jeans for a super sleek look.
The triceratops pattern is embroidered on the finished sweater using duplicate stitches, following a detailed chart.
