Crocodile Rock Crochet Baby Blanket
We are adding the pattern to your Afghan Patterns.
This project has been added to your afghan patterns.
If you've never tried the crocodile stitch, we suggest you try it while you work up this Crocodile Rock Crochet Baby Blanket. We really can't get over how cute this blanket is, and it has a unique combination of crocodile stitch, shell stitch, and v stitch. The title is inspired by the Elton John song of the same name, so this pattern is even better for that! You can switch up the colors, but we really love the alternating white, pink, and blue for a baby. There's even a video tutorial for the crocodile stitch so you can learn how to crochet it.
NOTE: For instructions on how to crochet the crocodile stitch see the Crocodile Stitch Tutorial video at bottom of page.
