Of course I'm not certain exactly what dinosaur skin looked like, but I'm convinced that it was not one colour, but a variety of many colours, much like a skein of Kroy Sock yarn. At least, that's what I'm going to believe until science proves me wrong.
This stegosaurus was made using some sock yarn in Cascade that I had leftover after making my pair of fingerless gloves. The pattern was my first purchase from PlanetJune. I've been a long time fan of her work, but never had the opportunity to purchase one of her patterns before. I'd give it the thumbs up for quality. The instructions were clearly written and came with lots of pictures to help me figure out the placement of the spines and legs. I definitely felt like I got my money's worth.
