Crocodile Stitch Scarf

 
“…Baby it’s cold outside…” I don’t know what the weather is like where you are but here we are experiencing 30 degree rain that started yesterday. If you are somewhere tropical then I’m headed your way and if you are under a foot of snow this project will help keep you warm.
 
When the temperature starts to drop I always enjoy breaking out the yarn to crochet and this year I wanted to learn some new techniques. The first scarf I am going to share is made using the crocodile stitch. I love the design and it’s not one you see many people wearing (I like to be different).
 
I will not try to teach you how to do the crocodile stitch but I will share with you the best video I found to follow. It took me a few times of taking the first couple of rows apart and rewinding the video several times but once you get started the rest goes together fairly easy. You can access the YouTube video here.
 
To make my scarf I used two skeins of Red Heart Boutique in Midnight. The pattern for the scarf I made can be found here (you will need to scroll down toward the bottom). I did add tassels to my scarf from the yarn I had left over so remember to leave enough yarn if you want to add them to your scarf as well.
