Apatosaurus: a linear skeinosaur

Inspiration drawn from videos here and here.

Brontoraptor: a circular skeinosaur

Inspiration drawn from this video.

note: a circular skeinosaur will be great for tubular fabrics (socks, scarfs, etc), but may also be used to create flat sheets - by always stopping and reversing direction at a given needle.

Brontoraptor Walnut-brain: a simplified brontoraptor intended for hand-crank operation
