Dinosaur Hooded Scarf

My daughter LOVES dinosaurs. She has a ton of dinosaur books and toys, and has told us she is going to be a paleontologist when she grows up. I knew that I needed to make her something with a dinosaur on it, and decided that a hooded scarf would be a great project for this.

This is a pretty simple pattern that is made much like my Unicorn Hooded Scarf.

My daughter loves her new scarf. She was very excited to try it on as soon as she got home, and said it is exactly what she wanted me to make.
