Alligator Scarf KAL?
Anyone interested in working on the Alligator Scarf from Morehouse Farm? I just got my kit in today!

Saw this kit and have just ordered one today as well as the pattern for the Mittens. But will probably be a couple of weeks before it reaches me here in the UK.

labeelady 02-13-2008 12:03 AM is so much fun! I have already completed the head, starting on the body. I showed it to some friends and they all guessed it was an alligator!

Sounds exciting, please post a picture. love to see the progress you are making.

I got my kit for Valentine's Day ^^
What color did you get? I got the Lagoon color.
I can't wait for the day I wear my completed scarf and see someone else wearing theirs and then we can have this comforting, awkward moment of staring and talking. Happy knitting all!

I got one of the new colors, Swamp Croc.

I'm already into the main body, where you do the 10-stitch bind-offs.

Still waiting for my kit to arrive. any progress pictures? would love to see how you are getting on.

You got it! This is as it looks now (2/21/08)

Thats just brilliant. the eyes makes it look very menacing. my nearly 7 year old son will love it. is it as 3D as it looks?

Yes, the eyes are made by binding off a few stitches, then casting on more stitches than you cast off on the next row. They're actually nothing more than holes but they do look menacing.

As you're knitting the body of the gator, you are increasing across the row, then you bind off several stitches, knit a few, bind off again, then on the next row you knit even, closing the gap made by the binding off. That forms the "bumps" on the back.
