Crocodile Stitch Cushion

I recently finished this little cushion.  My favorite color!  I found the bamboo yarn on sale at a discount store and knew right away what I wanted to do with it.  I love how it turned out.

The crocodile stitch isn't difficult, but I had to use extra brain cells at the beginning and end of each row to keep the alternating "scales" even. 

You can find the instructions here.  I had so much fun making the pattern that I did it for both the front and back.  It would be a lot quicker to do it just on one side like the original instructions.

your pillow is wonderful. I used this stitch to make a tea cosy and enjoyed every minute while making it. Seeing your pillow makes me want one for my new sofa. I guess one more project wouldn't hurt.

I have Mr. Linky open for my Needlework Tuesday post from yesterday if you are interested.
