By the time I finished this project, which is a gift for a friend (I’ve yet to actually see her to give it to her!), winter is practically over! But never mind, I’m sure it will get some use in the future..
Once you’ve started working the crocodile stitch, you realise how easy it is (and addictive!). The pattern I used here is available to buy through the same etsy shop as the Crocodile Stitch Baby Booties which I’ve made twice now for Christmas and Birthday presents (in various sizes), by Bonita Patterns.
I’ve used a super-soft cotton rich yarn, 4-ply and a 4.5mm hook to create this lovely piece. It’s so nice, that I’m probably going to have to make another one now (because I want one for myself!).
This neck warmer should go well with my buddy’s red coat (that gives the game away a bit!). And of course I had to be fair so I’ve made her hubby a blue beanie hat also…
I think the whole family has got (or will soon receive) a prezzie now.
