Learn to Crocodile Stitch: 4 Easy Techniques FAQ

Why is it 5 dc in the first V-stitch and not 6 like the rest?Expand

When a beginning crocodile scale is started, the ch-3 of a beginning crocodile scale (at the beginning of a crocodile scale row or rnd) counts as 1 dc and then 5 dc are worked around the left side of the V-st. The 6 dc that are worked on the right side of the V-st equal the ch-3 (which counts as 1 dc) and 5 dc on the left side. Then, when you continue to work more crocodile scales (for example as in the rnds for the boot toppers) you will work 6 dc around each side of the V-st. You can actually hear me explain this at the beginning of rnd 2 of the boot topper design in the In the Round technique.

Debra is an excellent instructor. It is taking me a long time to do this I know. I have severe R.A. and sometimes my hands do not co-operate. I am determined to master this stitch; I continue to work on it. Thanks Debra for this video; it is a beautiful stitch.

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!
