Here are the Rainbow Dragon Booties I made for Lilak Tygress in the OTHPT3.

Pattern Used: Crocodile Stitch Booties by Bonita Patterns (WARNING: Not lefty friendly!  And adjustments had to be made for as written turns out to be VERY tiny.)
Yarn Used: Knit Picks Chroma Prism
Hook Used: E (Susan Bates because I find they work better for me with fine yarns)

This was also my first go around with the Crocodile Stitch. I found it quite fun, with fabulous results, and after you get the hang of it, pretty easy.

Okay enough chatter, to the pics!









Thanks for peeking! Grin

I've been wanting to use a crocodile stitch for a long time. These look so fuzzy and cozy!

You should try it. Grin  If you can do a post stitch, then you can do the crocodile stitch.  Plus, there are some fab YouTube videos of this stitch that are quite helpful.  I'm thinking of doing a scarf or shawl in this stitch, but first I need to finish some of my WIPs. Tongue  (I have a bad problem of starting tons of projects.)

I absolutely love the yarn. They way the colors worked out is just beautiful! Oh, and it looks so soft too. I really need to buy some yarn from Knit Picks.

I have a little stash of Knit Picks, and I'm loving all of the yarn so I would definitely recommend them. Grin
