Absolutely charming! My son will be getting married (date as yet unknown) so I will be making one of these to show my soon to be daughter-in-law! Thank you for this pattern!

You need to add a link for the Crocodile Stitch: http://www.favecrafts.com/?task=search&search_term=Crocodile+Stitch

I think this is absolutely the cutest thing! My goal today is to hunt down a pretty vintage clasp.

Love the idea but does not show you how to make a crocodile stitch and you start pattern off Rnd 1: MC ? MC is normally term for main color, Rnd 2: 11 dc in MC can you explain...thank you

I think on this occasion the MC must refer to Magic Circle

NICE PATTERN; HOWEVER, YOU DID NOT EXPLAIN HOW TO MAKE A CROCODILE STITCH. I went to a youtube and had great directions.
