BEWARE of the Flying B.Wereclops (part Brontosaurus, part Werewolf, part Cyclops)!!!  He may descend on you unaware and "fang" you to death!!  ACK!

   

Some specs...
I used random yarn from my stash and size US7 needles.  The body and spikes are from the dinosaur patterns found here.  I made up the wings pattern myself because I couldn't find a suitable one out there.  I wrote it down in case anyone wants to use it.  I also inserted some wires into the wings so they were pliable and able to be bent in the shapes I wanted them in.  The only bummer about this guy is that he's a little top heavy.  So I inserted some soldering wire my husband had (he suggested it!) up through his body and up into his head.  That helped a lot!  I had a lot of fun with this guy and hope you're SCARED OUT OF YOUR MIND now when you go out of your house, looking for the Flying B.Wereclops!  HA!

Sidenote:  This is my first ever knitting challenge!  It was a lot of fun and I'm sure I'll enter more now in the future!  YAY!  Also, the Flying B.Wereclops now sits atop my computer watching my every move... I've tamed him into submission for now but who knows what will happen in the future....



Modified to add WINGS pattern:

CO 25
Row 1: Knit
Row 2: K22, K2tog, K1
Row 3: BO 1 st, K to end
Row 4: K to last 3 sts, K2tog, K1
Row 5: BO 1 st, K to end
Rows 6-13: Repeat last 2 rows 4 times more.  This leaves you with 11 sts.
Row 14: Knit
Row 15: CO 6 and K across (17 sts)
Row 16: K to last 3 sts, K2tog, K1
Row 17: BO 1 st, K to end
Rows 18-23: Repeat last 2 rows 3 times more.  This leaves you with 9 sts.
Row 24: Knit
Row 25: CO 4 sts, Knit across (13 sts)
Row 26: K to last 3 sts, K2tog, K1
Row 27: BO 1 st, K to end
Rows 28-29: Repeat last 2 rows
Row 30: K to last 3 sts, K2tog, K1 (8 sts)
BO

ENJOY!

Son won't you play me a memory?
I'm not really sure how it goes.
But it's sad and it's sweet
and I knew it complete
When I wore a younger man's clothes.
