How to Crochet the Crocodile Stitch Free Pattern

How to Crochet the Crocodile Stitch Free Pattern
by Kristin Omdahl

This is a unique and highly textured stitch pattern that is a lot of fun to learn. It creates a dense and bulky fabric. It only uses chain, single crochet and double crochet, but it is the placement of the stitches that makes this quite tricky to learn! Once you get the hang of it, I think you will enjoy adding this to your repertoire of crochet skills! Just by learning this technique below, and working until you run out of yarn, you will make a striking scarf! There are also 3 tutorial videos you can watch along to help you with this technique: right hand crochet, left hand crochet, and slower for beginners.

What you will need:
1 ball Be So Sporty Yarn shown in Harbor Fog
G/6 (4mm) crochet hook
