Great question, Jill! Your hips look like they are doing their job, hooray! The next place to check in is the path of the elbow. It may be that your elbow is passing the pole as you turn to hook the legs, which is crossing the tail with the pole and making a very sticky spot. To release the croc, all of the fabric wraps you built from the beginning need to have the same relationship for them to come off. The wrap highest on your arm might be passing the second wrap to make the cross. Try keeping the elbow glued to the pelvis as you turn to hook the legs or renegotiate the elbow to undo the crossed fabric on your arm. Please keep us posted!
