I've finally finished a project!  I made this crocodile scarf some time ago, but only attached the eyes and nostrils in the last few days.  It was going to be a Christmas present for one of our godsons, but his birthday present didn't arrive in time so we've done a swap.  He'll get his scarecrow puppet for Christmas now instead.

I'm really pleased with the way it's turned out. The pattern was in Let's Knit magazine a couple of months ago, although I modified it slightly to make it longer (I added about 32 rows of the straight section).  The eyes were quite tricky but I think they look good in the end.

I need to redo the eyes on the blue scarf (they're too close together and too far forward... he just looks scary!) so I can't call that one finished yet.  Crocodile no. 3 was cast on last Saturday.

I'm still working hard to finish the grown-up scarves, so I'll post about this next Wednesday...


  1. Lovely scarf! It looks so realistic :)

    Here's my FO:

  2. Oh, my! This is a perfect scarf for a little boy! It's got just the right amount of Snips and snails, and puppy dogs tails!

  3. I just love the bumpy body of your alligator scarf!

  4. Thanks! I've loved making this pattern - so easy and a good knit for when I was in the car or watching telly since I didn't need to watch every stitch.
    I've edited the post to include a link to the Ravelry pages for it now.
