Chiq Crocodile Cuff


I am on crocodile overload because Mikey @ The Crochet Crowd with AllFreeCrochet are doing a huge giveaway!! (Details can be found on the crochet crowd website click on the link above) So I give you the simple easy and fun Crocodile Cuff

I used a size F hook and  a teal size 3 and a sparkle white crochet fashion thread size 10

chain 16 for an xtra small wrist ( you should be able to slip it on and off) or 23

Row 1 - chain 4 and 2 dc in the 5th chain from the hook, *skip 1 space and chain 1, skip one space and 2 dc in next space* Repeat until the end. sl to first stitch

* you make the crocodile stitches  around all the 2 dc's and IGNORE the single dcs.

Row 2 - ch1, *5 dc around the first dc, dc around the next dc , skip the 1 dc* repeat
This is where you put 2 dc

** You want your second row of scales to be inbetween the first row***
This is where you want to put 1 dc

Row 3 - with alt color attach and ch 3 on any single dcm dc in the same space, *chain 1 2 dc in next (single) dc chain 1 ,dc in center of prev. scale.* repeat (see photos.)

row 4 same as row 2

  1. With enough time and a good mixture of aquas, blues and greens...sparkly yarns even, you could make a crocodile stitch skirt for a mermaid costume...OMG that would be sooooooo awesome! Since it looks kind of like scales when layered upon each other. If I was skinny I would pay you to make me a mermaid costume ha ha.

  2. I love this pattern!!! But what does "dcm dc in the same space, *chain 1 2 dc in next (single) dc chain 1" mean on row 3? I feel like I'm missing something here. Also, I'd love the pattern for the skirt when you are finished! I have a 4 year old grand-daughter I'd love to make it for--if it really is as easy as you say the basic pattern is! :)
    Thanks for sharing your patterns!!!!!

finger crochet cowl

Hey everyone! I took a ball of Lionbrand Heartland Thick and Quick with me to an Angel baseball game. I always bring yarn because while going to games is fun the boys in my life enjoy them far more than I do! This project to only took me 1/2 of an inning to create so it you want something quick this is your project.


I only used 1/2 of the ball but you can get an extreme one by using the whole ball... it would be perfect for cooler weather.

I started by making a slip knot with my fingers.
Then I wrapped the yarn around my index finger and pulled through so that I was chaining with my fingers. See photos below. After you have finger crocheted the length you want, I did 1/2 the ball knot the end, wrap around your neck to the desired length and use about 6 inches to wrap around all the strands like the photos show. I weaved in my ends or you can use fabric glue to make it super secure. Any 5 ply or 6 ply yarn can be used to make this.I have a kids tutorial for finger crochet here
