Developing the Dinosaur hooded scarf

My son, like many other small boys, loves dinosaurs. This hooded scarf design was developed initially for him. The stitch that creates the effect is called crocodile stitch – but it is perfect for dinosaur scales. My sons prototype was so popular in the playground I thought I ought to make a few more of them. He loves to chase his friends, roaring away in full T-rex mode!

The idea of the hooded scarf is based on practicality and is a result of being the one who ends up carrying discarded items of clothing. The hood is warm and cosy and can be secured with the scarf ties. The hood can also be pushed back off the head when your child gets too hot from running around pretending to be a stegosaurus.

We’ll be developing more animal design soon, so if you have any ideas please let us know.
