Designed by Jane Burns.


Jane Burns has given her button-up hooded cardigan a dinosaur theme, by adding knitted spikes down the center back, and an adorable little tail! These are knitted separately and sewn on to the finished garment. The project is sized to fit babies and toddlers aged from birth to five years, and would make a fun gift for any little one.
