Morehouse Farm writes beautiful, easy to follow patterns. It was a pleasure knitting this alligator scarf for my daughter.So many knitters on Ravelry said to avoid the yarn Morehouse suggests and sells for its patterns because of the abundance of vegetable matter, and the itchiness. I used Berroco Comfort because it is non-animal and completely washable. It comes in lots of colors, but I stuck with traditional green and think it looks great. I doubled the yarn at the head and tail to give more body. Knit on 7's.
