I saw this pattern for a crocodile scarf on ravelry several months back – I bookmarked it and keep checking back but it always just says “pattern coming soon”. This is very annoying and so I have decided to take matters into my own hands! I really want to make this scarf but with no pattern I’ll just have to figure it out for myself. I’ve looked at a few videos of the crocodile stitch but I find videos hard to follow because everyone’s crochet style is different and they hold the work at different angles, twist the hook around different ways. I find written instructions with diagrams and photos of the steps much easier to follow but I’ve not found much of that (especially for left-handers) so I’m just going to muddle through and try to blog in detail as I figure each bit out.
The starting point is the diagram below – I’ll start at the tail and figure out how to increase as I go along.
