The Crocodile Stitch came abruptly onto the market in 2011 and quickly gained the hearts of crocheters globally. It is unique and fun.
I created the Rio Scarf, to allow you to do something practical with your new found skills.
So to keep this blog real in the sense of being bluntly honest. The one disadvantage to the Crocodile Stitch is that it tends to be a yarn pig. Meaning… it uses up a lot of yarn for the distance. If you see the Rio Scarf Pattern, there are 4 balls of yarn in that scarf. No big deal really for value or economy priced yarn. For higher end yarn, this scarf could topple up to and even over $50 easily in yarn costs. Not everyone wants to use cheap or economy yarn, so just be aware that the costs of the yarn are inflated due to the amount needed for this type of stitch.
Otherwise, I love this stitch. It is cool and trendy! If you have never tried it before, there’s a tutorial below. Grab your crochet hook and some yarn and begin right now!
