Mariposa you alligator looks great. Well done.
InterNette Your gator is great as well, how did your niece like it.
When I bought it I could not find the pattern only so ended up ordering the yarn. cost me a fortune in postage. Am not using the yarn, don't like it.
I am using Sirdar Click DK double stranded and it is working out really well. have done two repeats on the back so far. This one will be for my 7 year old son for Christmas. I am sure I will make more. Might do it in single strand with smaller needles so it is a little smaller for my two year old daughter.
