Some I did in i-cord, rather knitting six stitches in the round on three needles! The feet pattern was also awkward and not very attractive.
I've used mostly sock wool, much of it just scrappy odds and ends I had. A lot of it was Patonyle, although the yellow was a little left from socks made in yarn from Needlefood in NZ, no longer in business.
The animal was supposed to be stuffed but it's going on a banner and already three dimensional. Ends of wool have been stuffed down inside the body to give a bit of bulk. It' can be flattened or rounded to suit, however my friend wants it.
The smallest crocodile is for my friend's grandson who is known as "croc." She suggested her mother would put it on a baby hat to keep his head warm. Her choice to do whatever she wants.
When I looked up the collective noun for a group of alligators, I also looked it up for crocodiles. There's a choice for them. A group can be a congregation or a float or a bask.
