Crocodile Stitch – Free Crochet Pattern



The Crocodile Stitch is one of the most popular crochet trends right now! This fun stitch creates a wonderful texture – it’s named after the scales of a crocodile, but it can also be used as flower petals or other similar textures. This is an intermediate skill pattern, due to its complexity. I recommend that you have experience with front post double crochets and V-stitches before attempting this project.

This stitch repeat can be worked with any size of yarn, but worsted weight yarn is a good size to practice with. It’s what we used in the video, along with a size H-8hook. If you choose a finer or bulkier yarn, just be sure to adjust your hook size accordingly.

Dreamz wooden crochet hooks are a favorite here at Maggie’s Crochet – they have a deep cut head to prevent your stitches from slipping, and the polished wood is comfortable and warm in your hand.
