Unable to figure out how to do the scale. Have started this pattern 3 times and when I get to the scale I am stuck.
Please help or is there a video I can watch?

Annie's Customer Service

Patricia - We have posted a video here to give you an idea of how the crocodile stitch is created. The crocodile pattern is created by working layers of scales. This video is mainly showing the general technique.
We are showing a small scale that starts with 5 sts and is worked in garter st. In some patterns the scales starts with 5 sts, others with 7 sts. Some scales are in garter st like in this video, but others may be in stockinette. In some patterns you work 5 rows back and forth, others 7 rows depending the size of the scale. Each scale works into 1 stitch, and you work all rows of one scale before you continue working the row.

I certainly hope I am just 'missing something'! I decided to start this pattern and the first thing I'm noticing is, it doesn't even say how many stitches to cast on (I counted 4 knits and 3 yarn overs ... so 7 total) but HOW does this go together with the 'tree part' where you cast on 109 stitches. (if that is the 'base' for the tree, pics would sure be helpful!) I'm encouraged since the first poster had no problems.

Sunny - The first part of the pattern on page one is explaining the Special Abbreviation MS (Make scale) with step-by-step photos.
The actual pattern to create the tree begins on page 2 where you cast on 109 sts.
You will see then in Row 1 where the MS is used in the row instructions.
Happy stitching!

I need help with row 6, there are not enough stitches.
Annie's Customer Service

Dale Ann - When you finish Row 5, you have 11 scale stitches on the needle. On Row 6, you k1, then bind off the next 9 stitches; that process uses up all 11 of the scale stitches. Then you purl 1 stitch from the left needle, so you will be purling one of the non-scale stitches. Finally, you pass the last scale stitch (that was left over after you completed the bind-off) over the stitch that you just purled, then turn to work Row 7.

Just finished this cute tree and I love it! Will make another one for my daughter. Had no problem with the pattern, very straight forward.

For the life of me I can't figure out how to do this pattern. The instructions for the scale are seriously lacking in direction. Yes, there are pictures but I am still unable to figure out what I am supposed to do. This pattern turns out to be a total waste of money. No way should it be rated "EASY".
