I have looked and looked and I even tried lots of different search engines and knitting pattern websites but here is what I get when I search “T rex knitting pattern free”:
A lot of T rex patterns that aren’t free
No T rex patterns that are free
Lots of patterns that are of dinosaurs other than T rex, both free and not free
So I figured, “Okay, I can’t seem to find any free T rex patterns so maybe I should just knit a T rex and write down the pattern as I go.
I definitely have enough yarn in total to knit a T rex. Whether or not I have enough of a single color really depends on whether you are talking about knitting the claws and teeth(in which case, I do have enough white yarn for it) or knitting the tail, body, head, and limbs in which case, I don’t know.
Using multiple shades(like light and dark) would help but even then, I still don’t know if I have enough.
But there is 1 thing I would have to figure out before I start knitting. How many stitches to cast on.
Knitting it flat makes it easier for me to sew and stuff whatever that piece is. Plus it helps me avoid 2 things that I have had happen while knitting small things in the round and those 2 would be:
Twisting on any round while using DPNs. I often don’t notice twisting until it is too late unless the twist is on the cast on row in which case I notice right away and can fix easily.
Visible join in magic loop and holes with increases. Even if I knit with higher tension in magic loop, I get visible joins, especially with a low number such as 10 or 20 stitches. When it is a larger number like 50, the join is less obvious but stuffing it would make the join obvious. I also tend to get holes where I increased in magic loop, especially with M1 increases. Not so much with kfb increases unless it is at the join.
