You will need:
Approx 150 g size 4 yarn (I used I Love this Yarn in Limelight)
Crochet Hook in Size 3.75
Tapestry Needle
Polyfil or preferred stuffing
12mm safety eyes
stitch marker

This crochet alligator is about 10 inches long when made with the recommended yarn. I consider it a beginner pattern and it works up pretty quickly! The crochet alligator’s head and body are made in one piece, and you will attach the legs and ridges on the back. I love the expression on his face!
