10 Pretty, Textured, & Free Sock Patterns

I’m daydreaming about when I’ll be done with my afghan for my friend’s wedding and can knit whatever I want again.  Here’s a medley of delightful and charming sock patterns that I’ve been looking at to tide myself over until then:

Crochet Gif Tutorials: Crocodile Stitch

A tutorial in 7 parts:
Part 1 - First Foundation Row
Part 2 - Row 1, First Scale
Part 3 - Row 1, Middle Scales
Part 4 - Row 1, Last Scale
Part 5 - Second Foundation Row
Part 6 - Row 2
Part 7 - Third Foundation Row

This tutorial shows my technique for making the crocodile stitch. I’ve looked at various other tutorials in the past and they all seem to have slightly different methods, but this is what I came up with as the way that works for me. I hope that it will help you too - but as always, play around and see what you like best!

So far, this tutorial only covers making the crocodile stitch in rows - so for things like scarves or anything rectangular. At some point in the future I hope to cover the adaptions you need to make to work this in the round.

Happy hooking! XX

Don’t think me fragile, quick to break

No, don’t ever make that mistake

My warrior spirit’s deep and strong

I can avenge when faced with wrong

I am the Warrior Princess.
