Texture! Texture! Texture! This Crocodile Crochet Baby Blanket has got plenty of it and I love it! My children loved anything with texture when they were small...texture and bright colors. I've seen plenty of patterns that call for this stitch as well as the front post double crochet and the v-stitch. These are all stitches that I have not learned and since this pattern is labeled an intermediate I think I'll put it on the back burner as something to look forward to doing in the future! It sure is attractive!!!

I love learning new techniques and I have seen several projects that utilize the crocodile stitch. I have recently learned that a new addition to the family will be arriving early spring and this will be perfect gift. Because the parents have decided to allow the sex of the baby to be a surprise, I will have to use a neutral color and I can not wait to get started.

This is another pattern from Lianka Azulay of Bonita patterns and yarn and she makes some of the most beautiful crochet patterns and a lot of them use the crocodile stitch. Someone above wanted to know how it would look on the back and it doesn't look bad, but that could easily be fixed by sewing a light piece of fabric to the back. As far as heaviness, using lighter yarn would help with that but it would take longer and you may have to adjust the size. Also, I wanted to remind people that this site is a compilation of patterns from other people's blogs and so on, so if you have a question about the pattern the moderators may not know the answer, so I would see who designed it and contact them and usually the designer is more than happy to help.

Although I have not used it, the crocodile stitch is one of my favorites because of the texture that you achieve when you complete the project. I am wondering if the blanket will be just as beautiful from the back as it is the front.

Ive been crocheting for many many years and I have yet to make anything that uses this stitch. It is a beautiful pattern. I have several friends and coworkers of my husband that are having babies later this year in the fall. This would be perfect for shower gifts.

I love this stitch! Never saw it before! Cannot wait to try it!

I am making this now and it is taking a long time to make, it is heavy not a blanket to rap a baby in, it is more for if you want another blanket on when they sleep, or as a decoration in the room. everyone who sees the blanket is in love with it and wants me to make them one.

This is definitely a beautiful looking baby blanket pattern. I have worked other crocodile stitch patterns before, and it does take A LOT of yarn. I am wondering how heavy this blanket would be when it is finished. Has anyone made it, and is it really heavy? I would imagine if you use baby yarn it wouldn't be quite so heavy, but still am wondering.

This is a beautiful Crocodile Crochet Baby Blanket. The pattern is well written and easy to read. I have tried the crocodile stitch before and love it, but it does take a lot of yarn to make a blanket, but well worth it. I found that I need to make sure I don't crochet to tightly or the pattern will roll. Thank you for this beautiful free pattern.

I have clicked on the link for this pattern but it comes up with just the picture and nothing else....please help, I really wanted this crocodile pattern

Hi bettspiperplace, Thanks for your message. I might suggest that you try posting your question to our sites Facebook page. It is monitored by the editor and is a great resource for helpful tips and suggestions from our Facebook friends; perhaps they can offer some guidance! Here is the link: -editors of AllFreeCrochet

what stitches did you use to single crochet down both sides?

do you have an answer to the above question? Please, I would appreciate it greatly.

why is my afghan rolling? Will it flatten out as I crochet more rows? I changed to a J hook linking I might be crocheting too tight. That doesn't seem to be working. Any suggestions?

this is very pretty .
