Crocodile Stitch Shawl



I'm beginning to love this stitch!  Good thing, as I had a request for this stitch in a neutral shawl with some light fringe.  Four skeins of Patons Lace Sequins in Amber is the perfect yarn!  A hook size of US H (5.00mm) is what is recommended in the pattern and what I used, but you could go up a size or two and use fewer skeins. 

It's easy to crochet up once you get the hang of this 2 row pattern by Bonita Patterns.


A long run yarn is really gorgeous in this stitch.  This is 3 skeins of Patons Lace in Bonfire.

Nice size for my petite daughter, Zoe and a wide wingspan.

Little gold sequins add a hint of glitter and shine.

After shooting a "sneak peek" photo to the customer, all is a go to ship!  Whew!  I'm always on pins and needles on a custom order until I get the go ahead.

I'd love to see your crocodile stitch projects of any kind, so feel free to send a pic!

* If you are a fair isle knitter, use the square plastic bag holders that come with a loaf of bread as bobbins!

    1. Thank you. Your little purse is just charming. I'm a huge fan of black and white. As I have reached my 50's, my closet is nothing but black, white and grey.

      I too, along with hubby, are foodies. My husband has been in the restaurant business since he was 16. He can cook anything. I, alas, am only proficient in Greek cuisine.

      Best,
      Sheila
