Is it a Poncho with T-Rex sleeves? Or a cape? Or a weirdly shaped cardigan?

In any case, this oversized garment is super comfortable, fun and versatile. Wear it with the opening in front as a stylish cape/cardigan, or turn P-Rex into a boxy sweater with an open back.

The unique combination of two-color brioche and garter stitch adds another texture and color dimension to the pattern. Use complementary colors that blend together or high contrasting colors that make the brioche pop.

P-Rex is knit seamlessly top-down with saddle shoulders in brioche stitch.
