Just waiting on my kit!
I'm ordering one in Lagoon. I've not done a KAL before...how does one do it?

Question - In MoreHouse Farm add - they have a special kind of color scheme/skein for these - if I wanted to do another one, which of their yarns would I order. I didn't see Croc Yarns under their Knitting Essentials.

Looking forward to it...what colors did everyone get?

I don't see the gator yarns anywhere but the page where they sell the scarf kits. Evidently you buy the yarn, then the pattern comes with it. You get two skeins of it, plenty enough for the adult scarf.

I'm using the SwampCroc color for mine.

I'm still waiting for mine, I think I would make more than one of these for my kids. I plan for the second scarf to just buy a similar yarn locally.

One yarn that comes to mind is Cascade 220. It comes in a wide variety of colors and is similar in size to the Morehouse Farm yarn.

Got my kit today, not for a bit a time to cast on. I just had to pick up my 12 year old from school because she felt unwell. so may take a couple of days before I get to play. Can't wait.

As far as I could tell you have to order the kit. I wanted to order the pattern as well as it would have been cheaper to buy the yarn in this country with the post they charge. If you live in the US the postage seemed quite reasonable.

Thanks Karina, I was afraid of that. From what I have heard the yarn that comes in the kit is scratchy. I did not really want to buy the whole thing.. with shipping for over 30 dollars just for the pattern lol..

Thanks again

Would have to agree the yarn is not nice, very rough.
I wonder if it has to be to hold the 3D shape or could you use any yarn that is the same thickness? If I use the yarn that comes with the kit I definitely would not give it to my son.

I'm hoping the yarn softens up in the wash. Most yarns have sizing on them, so washing it might make the yarn softer. It is merino though and handwashing is recommended.
