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!!!!!

Cross Bangle

I wanted to crochet a sideways cross bracelet for some time now but it wasn't until I received this lovely STARDUST( by Red Heart yarn ) that I actually sat down to make it!  This project will fly by you will want to make one for everyone at church :)


Stardust - any color you like I used #1303 Brown * this requires very little yarn, so make a lot!*
E crochet hook

Skill - Advanced Beginner
(* HINT this is basically a vertical row or a shell*)
First stitch***
Ch3, hdc 3rd ch from hook, ch1, 2 hdc ( all in the same space)
Every other one***
*turn, slip stitch until you and in the ch1 space, ch2,1hdc,ch1,2hdc* repeat until you have the length desired, * it should stretch slightly to slide on and off your wrist.. **

suggested lengths _
Woman's s/m ~18 shells
l/xl ~20 shells
Mans~ 23 shells
child~ 11-15 ( 11 fits most five year olds)

sew the 2 ends together and weave in your tail at least 4 inches worth so it will not come undone.

Thread Cross Bookmark

I used Aunt Lydia's Crochet thread and a size D hook.

Make a magic circle

Round 1
Ch3, 2dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2 and join.

Sides and top of cross
Ch3 2dc, ch2, dc3 in any ch2 sp. Turn and *sl to ch2, ch3,2dc, ch2,3dc. *Turn and repeat * repeat everything in this step 3 more times. Cut thread and weave in ends at the ends of the sides.

Bottom of the cross
When you get to the last side repeat the * section 2 more times for a total of 4 shells for the bottom and 2 shells for the sides not including the center.

On the top of the cross attach yarn and chain 26, skip the first 5 and sl to the first chain. Then I added a tassel.

Chiq Shell Shorts

I wrote this pattern at the request of AFC Check  them out to see all the other amazing patterns and videos they have!!!


Hello everyone, Have you noticed how many celebs are donning crochet items? I've noticed a lot of crochet shorts out there, why buy them when you can make them with this free pattern? The other upside to making them is you can make them the length, color and size you want!! I will write out directions for a small adjust them as you go for your size. For example to start  do FDQC until you are from one hip to the other and then add a few extra stitches for the seam. 
To start this pattern is worked int twp pieces the front and back. They will look like undies until we get to the legs

Use crochet hook size J
Use any 4 ply yarn 
1-Start by doing Foundation quadruple crochet 50 2-sc in each stitch for a total of 50


3- make shells (2hdc,ch1,2hdc) across skipping 3 sc in between each shell. 4- do six rows of shells ( skipping 4) …
