Crocodile stitch crochet patterns are great to add a bit of flare to your project. This look is modern, yet chic and can give the look of sophistication. Any crocodile stitch pattern will give your crochet design just the right amount of texture and will fancy up any crochet crocodile stitch bag or simple scarf.
In order to perfect your project it's easiest to keep everything in groups of six (six chains at a time). To start your project you need to pinch and chain 3 then start your first stitch where you pinched. The crocodile stitch is not worked on the top layer, but it's worked on the posts, which is the foundation of your project.
