This is a really nice cowl. I would call it a dickey you would wear on the outside. I was a little confused about how it would be worn until I read the posts at the bottom of the directions. Working the cowl from bottom to neckline makes a lot of sense.

Ok, that does it. I can't put it off any longer. I have to !earn this stitch. I don't know why but it intimidated the neck out of me. You don't know how many times I have gotten ready to do it but always find an excuse to put it down.

I just love this beret design because of the added ribbon. That makes it really special. I am hoping that the ribbon can be switched out to compliment what is being worn. I know I will start with a basic black and buy several color ribbons to use. I can not wait to get this one done.

I loved the look of this scarf so immediately began making it However due to the inadequate written pattern I was forced to visit tutorials on YouTube in order to learn how to properly do the stitch The author of this particular pattern left out a few key steps that I soon learned about from watching several other videos on the same stitch There are several different ways to do the stitch and everyone invents their own take which I think is ridiculous but whatevs So you need to sift through the various patterns to determine what works for you As you can see from my photo I was finally able to figure it out The scarf itself is very lightweight and goes surprisingly quick If using a self-striping yarn it would be even cooler Just be extra-careful when working this up and be prepared for some snags in the steps…Read More

I love the crocodile stitch, and this cowl is simply beautiful. Does anyone know how heavy it is? I love lightweight scarves, and this just looks heavier than I am used to. This could be because the crocodile stitch patterns I have made are heavier than your average pattern. The pattern is easy to follow, and the color is pretty too.

It really most likely is not as heavy as you may think it is. Yes, the stitches are clustered very close together, creating a dense effect. But i think the weight of the cowl would depend on the bulk of the yarn you choose. A fingering(3) weight yarn would work great for a pattern like this, versus a 5 weight (bulky).

I've been following the pattern and finally got the hang of it but I don't understand what makes it taper to a triangle shape. I assume it's worked from the top down but I dont see where in the pattern it decreases stitches or what makes it smaller near the bottom?
Aug 10, 2018
You begin the pattern with the scale of the triangle, and then increase the further up you go.

This Coral Crocodile Stitch Crochet Cowl gives the croc a feminine touch. The croc skin imitation design looks so real you would get scared if this was done in a color similar to croc skin. This is one project I don't intent to do, though.

Oh wow what a beautiful Coral Crocodile Stitch Crochet Cowl. The coral color made with the crocodile stitch is so sweet. After reading the written pattern, I see this is made from the bottom up to the neck. Making a nice rectangular cowl. I'm sure you can make it bigger so it would not be tight around the neck but the pattern makes for a nice snug fit. I'm sure all my friends will want to steel mine.. Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful free crochet pattern.
