Crocodile Scarf Tail « Cult of Crochet. So this is where I’m up to with the crocodile scarf.

Crocodile Scarf Tail « Cult of Crochet

I looked at a few different websites explaining the crocodile stitch and while everyone does seem to do it slightly differently once I got my head around the general idea it was actually very easy. I also discovered that my main issue with watching videos to learn stitches is that I get bored after about 10 seconds. Apart from videos there didn’t seem to be much of anything else and what there was was quite sketchy and vague. ~ Squircle v-3 ~ ~ version 3 ~ Materials:- 4-ply ww acrylic yarn - small amount for circle - small amount soft white- J hook Size: 5" Notes:- ch 2 at beginning of Rnds 1 and 2 do not count as a stitch- I crochet tight, so you may want to adjust the size of your crochet hook Directions:Rnd 1: With circle color ch 3, 12 dc in 3rd ch from hook.

Yarn magazine mainly because it contained a tutorial for making baskets out of scraps of yarn and raffia. I reckon these baskets are made with the same method. I decided to give it a go, using loom ends and some thick acrylic yarn my Mum used to make a hooked rug out of in the 70s. I didn’t like the method. The main pro was that I could use up loom ends, the main con was that the constant joining in of a new bit of yarn and the sewing was time consuming. I kept thinking that I could probably do this using crochet, with one continuous strand. It is there, though with a much less appealing cover. Hmm. Anyway, I looked at my macrame supplies and there were two thicker kinds of rope that would work well, in natural and black.

How to crochet granny ripple. I am sure many of you who can crochet fairly well may not know how to crochet a granny ripple. While I was crocheting my vibrant pillow 3 I thought I would make a tutorial on granny ripple but for some reason I couldn't do it then. Here it is now. Once you get started and go in the right direction granny ripples are fun to make, but getting started is what irks me a lot. The major problem here is deciding upon the number of chains to start with.
