Stella's Dino Wee Balaclava!

Dino Wee Balaclava

I was so inspired by the TFA Tuesday post featuring Pauline's awesome Dino Wee Balaclava that I went ahead and cast on for my own version and used her great notes to add the dino spikes. Though Stella makes an awesome model, this hat is actually a gift for my little cousin.

I knit mine in Olive with Lemongrass spikes and it definitely looks very dinosaury to me, perfect for a 3 year old boy.

Am I the only one who finds these photo's of Stella absolutely hilarious!? She's so used to wearing sweaters in the cooler months that she wasn't phased in the least when I put this balaclava on her. She totally cracks me up. She makes my day.

  1. Nope. Not just you. This actually made me squeal, and I'm a little disappointed Stella doesn't get to keep the hat. I'm sure the 3-year-old actual recipient will love it though. I know my dino-mad brother would have at that age.

  2. She's a fav in our house. I showed the pics to T then went to another page. She keeps saying "I want to see Stella again!"

  9. Ha ha ha! Nope, you're not the only one - I laughed out loud when I saw pic #3. I think you need to have a caption contest for that one.

  12. So cool, I found your site totally via google search for Ombre hair color. I love your stuff it is great and better yet super contemporary. I saw one of your cardigans that is awesome. I will look around but do you sell anything other than the hats?
