This technically easy stitch is a great way to hone your skills, and it produces a dense and "squishy" fabric.

The Vertical Crocodile Stitch (pg. 9) is another easy stitch that won’t take you long to understand. This stitch, resembling scales on a crocodile, will add a bit of flare and some fun texture to any pattern you add it to. Its twisting, circular design is a fun stitch to learn. This stitch can also look like petals on a flower, which makes it one of the most versatile skills to learn and will set you on a path to working up everything from edgy scale designs to delicate floral pieces.
