because every girl needs a pink gator

When my friend, Stacy, called me in October telling me that the only gift her daughter requested for Christmas was a pink alligator, I knew I needed to help her out.  I mean, every girl needs a pink gator, right?

As I browsed Ravelry, I found the perfect pattern, Plush Alligator by Kristi Benedict.  It was well worth the $5.  The belly is my favorite!  This gator is actually quite long, 18 inches, if I remember correctly, but it knits up super fast using a bulky yarn.  I used Lion Brand Thick & Quick in white and pink and wooden buttons for the eyes.  I’m a total fan of wooden buttons.

If you know a girl who needs a pink gator, let me know, because I’m in the business of making sure every girl has a pink gator in her life. 🙂
