How to Crochet a Crocodile Stitch: Tutorial

Hey everyone....

I really love this stitch. I plan to make some scarves and tote bags using this style. But, I'm a crocodile stitch newbie. I will be teaching myself this stitch as I go along..... I really hope it doesn't require a great deal of counting and concentration once you get the hang of it. Constant counting makes me crazy.... and I crochet to calm me down, not frustrate me! I think this would also make an awesome baby blanket in a jungle or zoo animal themed room. I will post pictures of my finished projects when done. I may even try to simplify and write a new pattern for this style.

Here are some free patterns using this stitch that you can test out:
Hub Pages
Crocodile Stitch Adult Crochet Hat
Crocodile Stitch Bag
Crocodile Stitch Shawl

And, here is the video tutorial by . It runs about 25 minutes. So, grab your J hook and learn how to make this new stitch with me!

Happy Hooking!
