Alligator Stitch / Crocodile Stitch Neck Warmer!!




(anyone know how to rotate a photo in the blogger editor?  I haven't been able to figure it out without re-saving it on the hard disk and going that route).

I recently purchased a pattern for a Crocodile Stitch Neck Warmer from Bonita on ravelry.com
It is a superb pattern and very well written, plus it has some great photos to help you make this pattern.

She also has a facebook group page at: http://www.facebook.com/BonitaPatterns.  

The materials I'm using are 3 strands of size 10 thread held together and a size G Clover crochet hook.   I wound strands of thread into a ball before I started this neck warmer, so that I wouldn't have to constantly fiddle with having 3 separate balls of thread to contend with plus, it takes up less space when you can discard those cardboard cylinders inside the balls of thread.

I started on this Saturday, December 31, 2011 and I am continuing to work on this Sunday, January 1, 2012, while watching my New Orleans Saints play the Carolina Panthers.  What a game with records broken in the NFL during this game!!

  A Colston touchdown catch!

 Ivory has "wheels" and is quick!


    Dunk Dat Ball, Graham! Amazing athlete who only played 1 year of college football - he was a college basketball player for the most part.


Here are some "progress" photos.  These were taken Saturday, December 31, 2011:



Note:  if anyone knows how to rotate these around in the blogger.com editor, I would appreciate the info.

You can see that I have 10 rows completed.  The "scale" row is the even-numbered row.  If you flip your piece over, you can see the V-Stitch rows (odd-numbered rows), upon which the scales are crocheted.






Hope everyone had a wonder first day of the new year, 2012!     :)

  2. Hi Lee Anne I just came across your blog and ...problem with the pictures.
    The blogger post editor don't have any tool to invert pictures. So what I use to do is,I go to pictures I want to upload and invert them in the Photo viewer or any other programme you have to see your pictures. After that I can upload them again.
    I'm not sure if It was helpful :)
