This pattern was originally created as a baby shower gift for a couple that loves the University of Florida Gators in the South Eastern Conference (SEC).
The South takes their football seriously, y’all!!
But, you don’t have to be a football fan to enjoy this adorable free pattern. Chubby Gator is the perfect cute and cuddly project for a baby. Its chubby size makes it extra nice for the baby to squish it with hugs. But, don’t stop there- Chubby Gator makes a great gift for anyone who is a fan of the Southern swamp dweller!
This pattern is easy to follow and uses basic stitches such as single crochet, half double crochet, and double crochet. You can make a large or a small alligator, depending on the yarn and hook size you use. Chubby Gator has a round body, a chubby little tail, and a friendly face with embroidered eyes. This pattern is perfect for using up your leftover yarns and making a unique gift for the gator lover in your life.
