An unusual crochet book featuring an innovative stitch. Crocodile stitch is 'formed by a two row repeat: a row of V-stitches (dc, ch 1, dc) followed by a row of scales (or shells). This is a fairly easy pattern to execute and is fast to memorize
says the book

's author, and the result is a really thick chunky textured fabric. There is one shawl, a hood, two pairs of wrist warmers, three hats and a neck warmer. As usual for an Annie's Attic publication the step by step photos are very clear and the instructions are completely accesible to the beginner crocheter. There are stitch abbreviations at the back of the book, a yarn conversion weight chart, an all-important US stitch to UK stitch chart (a US single crochet is a UK double crochet and the book is American), a pictorial stitch guide to everything from chain to a treble crochet increase and a page of metric conversion charts. * sewingisforgirls.blogspot.com *'
