Lemonade and Lamingtons had put out a challenge on Twitter to have a go at crocheting a Crocodile stitch scarf. The stitch is quite complicated to get to grips with, but the effect is stunning ...
You can see her completed scarf here on her Flickr page :-
So, i've risen to the challenge, first sorting out this Balmoral yarn in 'Deerstalker' - yes I want it to look both Autumnal and 'crocodile-like'! Just hope i've got enough of it ...
And so I've begun, this little bit took quite a while, but i've done some more since taking these photographs, so it does feel like it is starting to grow. I just hope the colour isn't going to make it look too mushypea-esque!!
It's almost like you are crocheting both a front and a back fabric - the scallops on the front are held in place by a grid structure on the reverse. So, for now i'm going back to my crocheting, i'm sure this is going to be a projects that I pick up and do a bit of in between other things so don't expect completion at the end of the week, but i'll do my best.
