So as a first pattern that I am going to document on here, I decided to take the one I was currently working on! A -surprisingly- free pattern straight from Ravelry!
Crocodile Stitch Afghan Block - Dahlia (See here for Ravelry page)
by: Joyce Lewis
I had some leftover pink yarn that I wanted to put to good use, so I decided to give this a shot! I had seen the crocodile stitch before, a lot in the latest Crochet Today magazines. I am glad that I finally decided to learn it! It is a very simple, and extremely cute stitch! Here is the tutorial that helped me to learn the crocodile stitch:
For those that prefer reading the crocodile stitch pattern, the procedure is mentioned throughout the flower square pattern, so no worries!
The pattern is community made and did take some getting used to, as you can see, I had no idea where I was going with it for the first hour or so!
My original plan was to make a small lunch bag that I could bring to work, would have consisted of one afghan block on each side, with my Color B (brown) , continuing the square pattern around the flower in order to make it bigger. However, I am having second thoughts, I will leave it alone for now!
To sum it up, the written pattern was hard to understand at times, but the result is very worth it, this is a simple way to get a beautiful flower effect, worthy of any kind of decorating! :) Definitely a favourite!
P.-S. I would have taken much more pictures but I had no idea
I was going to document it! Will do much better with the upcoming patterns!
Thank you for reading!
