King Rraarrrr!

I. Am. King. Of the world! My name is Trice and rraarrrr at you! Rraarrr! Grraarrrr!

Some of you wannabe dinosaurs prance around all pretty and orange, but you are nothing compared to my ferocious self!

And Cheerios? Come ON! Only wussies from Planet Loserville go after stinky Cheerios. As if demanding all the Cheerios in the world will make you strong and powerful and fearsome! AS IF!

Real dinos, dinos with serious ambition and a terror-inspiring stride, demand the only food which instantaneously screams, look at me, be afraid of me, I will ravage your cities and toss your cars like little toys…

… Werther’s Originals. Rraarrr! Give. me. your. candies! All the Werther’s will be mine! Mwahahahaha! Rraarrr!

Pattern: Dinosaurs by Jennifer Thurston of Xtreme Knitting. This is Trice. The other two were rejected because, come on, no frill!

Yarn and needles: Classic Elite Four Seasons, less than 1 skein, knit on Bryspun straights, US 5. I really enjoyed working with this yarn, and love the way it knits up. I think it would be even more fun on 7s ;).

Finished size: Ha-uuge! Equipped with some Werther’s, Trice will rule the world (13″ long, 4.5″ high).

Mods: I didn’t change a thing except to crochet the horns. For real! And you know (you know!) I don’t crochet just for anyone ;) – this dino is for Purly! Also, I realized that I was misunderstanding some of the instructions, so dinosaur #1, Mr. Stegs, has some unintentional mods ;) (it has to do with “purl rows” versus “wrong-side rows”).

Of course Trice has a vicious 5-tooth growl. Of course! How else could he demand all the Werther’s and become King of the World?!? Rraarrrr!

    Dang, you got really excited about that vicious knitted trice. Love him, and after I knit some nautiloids, I’ll be trying knitted dinosaurs. I don’t think mine will be so ferocious, though.

    I am still really afraid of dinosaurs after watching Jurassic Park years ago! But I can handle the picture of a cute one like this. :)

    Damn, if that’s what Werther’s say maybe I should be more careful about who’s around when I eat them… ;) Trice is awesome!!

    Lucky Purly. He’s adorable (although don’t tell him I said so – tell him I said ugly and mean looking). He has good taste in candy too.

    How can it be so cute and so scary at the same time! I quail before thee, small fuzzy thing.

    Kind of like how I feel about ferrets.. but that’s another story…

    No one could deserve this more than Purly. Yay!

    AaaAAAAAaaAAAAAH! Please, take all my Werther’s! We will sacrifice our hard candies [non of those woosie chewy ones] to spare our blog from being distroyed by your fearsome teeth! AAAaaaaAAAAaaaAAAAaauuuuugggghh!!!

    grumperina, you should really think before you unleash dinosaurs onto a 21st-century planet. did you not see jurassic park?

    Werthers? Man, even the herbivores are going to make fun of him behind his back. We know that in his heart, he’s a softie.
    :)

    Cute!

    LOVE it! wish you could post a recording of yourself doing the dinosaur voice, as growly and wonderful as it is in type. what a light spot in my day to read this post : )

    I’m all about the toy knits right now, and this dinosaur you’ve knit is FAB. (I’d better not show it to my boy, or he’ll ask me to knit him one :-))

    These little guys are addictive. There are now various kidlets in my near vicinity who are the proud companions of 1 Bronty, 2 Trice and 3 Mr Stegs (or Emily the Brontosaurus, Serah and Tricky the Triceratops, and Enzo, and 2 unnammed stegosauri).

    Definitely a ferocious killer. I can see that with just a few mods, this pattern could also produce a good beetle or three. Very cute!

    I love him too!!! Nothing like a little dino to take the edge off a foreign language pattern or an eleventy million stitch round! I surrender… here are my Werthers and all my Rogers Cremes.

  14. Jennifer

    My husband just loves it when I read these cute little dino posts to him. He’s not feeling well and this one just made him laugh!

  15. Christina

    He’d better take good care of his 5 precious pearly whites if he’s going to be snacking on Werther’s for all eternity. How about some spinach now and then?

    oh – i am in love. in love i tell you. trice-y darling i must have you. all of my werthers are yours….
