What was your inspiration?
With recently falling in love with cocoons and the crocodile stitch, I thought nothing could be better than combining the two in one pattern. I did not simply want to stop with the last row of crocodile stitches and thought how pretty it could be to have an afghan-like topper that would beautifully crown the baby's head.
What are you most proud of?
Figuring out how to make the top like an afghan and having it turn out evenly and nice looking.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
This pattern is not for the new crocheter. There is a great free tutorial video on the crocodile stitch which I highly recommend from Art of Crochet by Teresa (love her videos). The link is on the crochet pattern itself. Once you learn this stitch it is fun and easy. Working it in the round is a bit tricky but once again, once you have the concept down it is easy.
