I found a wonderful aligator pattern and decided to knit it for a friend’s seven year old son. His favorite colour is orange, so that’s what I’m using.
After the first few rows, I realised it needed to be on a larger needle. The yarn is extremely stiff – it has to be because of the pattern, but on the size 5 or 6 needle they suggested, it would have been as stiff as a board. So now I’m using an 8 and it feels better.
Its fun! You can see the nostrils and I’m doing the eyes now – they are really good.
