This Two-Hour Crocodile Stitch Flower is so sweet! I am making them using size 10 cotton thread and a F hook. They are coming out much smaller and look great on my hats. This is a keeper for sure. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet flower pattern.

Before I looked at the directions for this crocodile stitch flower pattern I was sure it would be one of those patterns that would get a lot of frogging. The skill lever is spot on with this design because it is just that easy. I am logging out and grabbing some yarn and will attempt to make one of these before I have to start cooking dinner.

I like easy projects that have a time limit attached to them. Most of the time, they designer is right and I appreciate the heads up. I am one of those people with too many pokers in the fire and if I can not get something done quickly, I never finish anything. I can use this to spruce up a store purchased item or just to embellish some of my existing crochet. I am always trying to keep it moving forward.

I have seen the crocodile stitch on blankets and hats but have never seen the crocodile used for a flower. It makes a pretty flower too. The photo shows beautiful colors navy, seafoam, off white. It was the colors and the middle floral pearl insert that got my attention. I can not wait to try this pattern.

To be very honest I've never been crazy about crocheted flowers however, I think these Two Hour Crocodile Stitch Flowers are the most realistic crocheted flowers I've seen yet! I can really see these being used to embellish a hat, a scarf, a purse, maybe even a wrap! I also like this artisan's website. The links and pictures make the directions look very easy to follow. I also like what she called the pearl stamens in the middle to give them an even more realistic look! Thanks for this free pattern!!!

These are so pretty. I have made regular roses but never using the crocodile stitch. Infact, I have never learned that stitch at all. I guess it's time to bite the bullet and learn. After reading the directions and seeing the pictures, I think it will be easy enough to get the hang of it.

This is an interesting way of working up a crocodile flower. Ive worked up rolled versions of roses before but never thought of using that method with Crocodile stitches. I whipped up a sample and found this to be a very efficient method. The designer takes you through each row with clear, close up photos as well as well written text. I actually like this presentation better than a video. Including the commercial pistils really set these apart, too.

This is a quick and cute project to add to a hat or really anything you want. You could make several to add to a top. Or you could sew a bunch on a scarf. They could be made in any type of yarn and any color. Any type of color changing yarn would look pretty. This is also a fun way to practice the crocodile stitch.

The designer was asked back in March is she could do a video of this pattern for further explanation and she said she would see what she could do to get it on the schedule, but I guess she didnt because, unless I missed it, it has not been added to this link anywhere.

The very first time I made these flowers I used regular yarn. I was trying to find a small flower to put on a hat I had made for my mother. With the regular yarn the flower overwhelmed the hat which was not what I wanted. Then I thought why not try this pattern with cotton thread? I use a size 2/2.25MM hook and size 10 thread. This make the flowers small and dainty perfect for embellishments on hats and things. I used the little flower to add to this beanie for a baby.

That's what makes crochet so wonderful. Simple changes such as yarn or hook size and you get a totally new look. The possibilities are almost endless!

I love this flower pattern, the instructions are really easy to follow for a beginner with images to show you how it is worked. I think it is very versatile as you could use it for a brooch, hair clip or embellishment on a hat or scarf. I have also tried making it with smaller yarn and hook and it has worked out really well so it is easy to adjust the size to meet your requirements.

Absolutely gorgeous on almost anything! Thank you for sharing the pattern )

After reading all the comments and the pattern, I think I will make this cute Two-Hour Crocodile Stitch Flower. I don't care for this stitch, thinking it uses way to much yarn. But for making flowers, it's perfect. I see a lot of people asking where to sew it together at? The written directions say to sew on the chain stitch row, as you roll the peddles. I love the pictures with the pattern and can see me making a lot of these. Great for hats and scarfs a like. Thank you for this free pattern.

I love making flowers to embellish my knitting and crocheting projects. These crocodile stitch flowers will look great on a crocheted beach bag I just made that needs something to brighten it up! The pictures in the tutorial for making these flowers make the instructions even easier to follow. Thank you for a great pattern!

This would be a great way to use up yarn ends. I can make one of these in one night and have seven by weeks end. I'd like to string these together to wrap around a hat or a purse.

Love this and the instructions with accompanying pics is great. But then when it comes time to sew it together I was confused and felt like I was left hanging. Where do we stitch? Do we start at the bottom of each petal, at the top of the stitches, or the very bottom of the stitches. Please, please clarify as I really enjoy your talent and easy instructions.

Love this flower pattern. I used it to make a pink rose. Easy to understand .

I knitted about 2 dozen hats for charity. For the majority of them I made these beautiful crocheted flowers in contrasting colors. Some I put buttons in the center, some with pearls, some big ones, some smaller ones. So versatile and easy. Thank you so much for such a lovely and beautiful pattern. Mary Ann
