Are you a crocheter who enjoys learning new crochet stitches? If so, you won't want to miss this exciting crochet class taught by longtime designer and instructor Debra Arch. Crocodile stitch is a favorite among many crocheters because of its interesting texture and dimension. In fact, it gets its name because the stitches actually look like crocodile scales!

In this crochet video, Debra will first demonstrate how to crochet the basic crocodile stitch used in many patterns. She'll then expand your skills with crochet lessons teaching you how to work this stitch in four amazing techniques--in the vertical, in the round, in the flat and in the circular. With Debra as your guide, you'll stitch nine pretty crochet patterns including an elegant lotus scarf, a skinny sequin scarf, easy headband and ear warmer, a beautiful cowl, cozy boot toppers, pineapple trivet, ruffled pillow and a whimsical owl purse. In this class, you'll learn:
  • How to crochet the basic crocodile stitch
  • Four techniques for crocheting crocodile stitch -- in the vertical, in the round, in the flat and in the circular
  • How to increase and decrease crocheted crocodile scales
  • How to crochet a stretchy single crochet foundation chain ideal for headbands and hats

I now have a beautiful cowl as a result of this class. I was confused initially, asked the teacher some questions that were answered, watched the video, and made a practice piece that was full of mistakes. Then I tried again, and got it right! It is simple, once you 'get it'. Thanks so much!

If the instructor would slow down, not everyone is as fast and it became very frustrating to have to stop and re-watch the video over again, and in no way can you produce the projects without the video. Please slow down or show the stitch in slow motion.

Thanks to Debra for all your help and attention you've provided me. I am delighted that I was able to make the cowl and it was a great project to make. I would like to recommend this to all customers to learn the crocodile. Debra is a good instructor and generous to share her ideas and techniques. I am giving Debra 5 stars!

After searching the internet for tutorials on how to do this stitch, the videos/webpages that I had found left me feeling more confused. This tutorial is taught in a way that I was able to easily understand, and left me feeling more confident in my execution of this fun and beautiful stitch. Thank you for this great tutorial!
