This Crochet Crocodile Stitch Craft Chair Tutorial gives detailed step by step instruction with the benefit of photos along the way. It is a beautiful stitch that once mastered you can use it in so many craft projects. You have to take a look at the “Homesteading Chair” – the Crocodile Stitch is used to create a textured roof.
This tutorial covers the not-so-difficult, yet beautiful crocodile stitch. This type of stich can be used for a wide variety of accessories, a sweater, a scarf – although a fancy looking scarf stitched with this style, would be – to die for.
Some recognised crochet terms are used to make the instruction manual more interactive and understandable, some of which are ‘ch’ = chain, ‘ss’ = slip stitch, ‘dc’ = double crochet,‘sk’ = skip – amidst many others.
The procedure begins from the bottom and progresses upward in a controlled, detailed manner, rotating your incomplete work around different angle to aid a better, not-confusing approach as you go. Stitching from the left to right, down the first double crochet (dc) and back up, continuing the precision stitch along every pair of the alternating “dc” and anchoring the ‘scales’ formed, to give them a controlled shape – moving on into the pairs of“dc” in the nextrow. This procedure is repeated, and then – with a slip stitch (ss) into the last pair of “dc” at the top to prevent the ‘scales’ from sticking out. This is repeated severally until the work is complete, then a few final stiches to close the work and –voila!
Crocodile stitch tutorials are all over the internet for anyone looking, but they all vary in approaches and can be a little dis-heartening for a first-timer.
However this simplified step by step instructions on weaving a crocodile stitch offers a most definite version, as it is easy to understand and follow – without getting you all twisted along the way.
