Crocodile from beads

The variety of products from beads simply blows the mind. From beads you can weave not only flowers, but also animals. With this master class you can very simply weave a crocodile. To create it we need a regular bead. Take a few flowers. For example, prepare dark green beads for the back of a crocodile, and prepare lime or yellow beads for your tummy. Also, you will need 2 white beads and 2 black beads for the crocodile's eyes. Prepare a 180 cm long copper wire for the entire crocodile body and 30 cm of the mandible wire.  beads
The general pattern of crocodile weaving looks like this:

Let's put aside the wire for the lower jaw, take a long wire and begin to weave the body of the crocodile from the tail. Please note that the scheme is common: how many green rows, so much the same and green.The light green diagram shows the lower jaw schematically - it is not included in the weaving of green rows. First dial 3 green beads, and then 3 green beads and pass the ends of the wire through them. Tighten tightly so that the free ends of the wire are the same.
 stringing beads
It is necessary that the body was voluminous, therefore it is necessary to weave so that the green row is over light green. Next, first string the green row and pass through the free end, and then light green. Observing symmetry, we obtain simple movements for crocodile weaving, which need to be followed further. We weave 3 rows of 3 beads.
 stringing beads
According to the scheme we fly to a row of 9 beads. Then we string 10 green ones and pass through the free end. Until we weave the bottom lime row of 10 beads - we weave our legs! On the free ends we string 7 beads, pass the 3 extreme ones and pass the wire through 4 others (at both ends = two legs). It is necessary to lower all the beads to the calf before tightening so that there is no free wire between the foot and the body.After weaving the legs, we hit the bottom green row of ten beads.

With a thin pencil or pen from a brush, you need to give volume to a calf , pushing it inside to 4 rows. Repeat this in the process of weaving.

We drown another 5 rows of 10 beads each. On the last 7th row, we repeat the same thing as on the first row, when the paws were weaving (observe the sequence "10 green-paws-10 light green"). Weaving a row of eight beads, insert the prepared wire for the crocodile's lower jaw into the lower green one.
