I love how the crocodile stitch looks. How interesting and different the pattern looks just by changing colors. This flower looks great in almost any color and the same is available for the leafs. This amazing afghan block uses surface crochet and a chain-loop version of the popular Crocodile Stitch to produce a glorious floral motif. Whether you work it up in a single color, go with the sunflower colors in the above picture, or choose your own favorite shades, this block will earn its place in your next afghan. If you decide to learn how to make it, you can follow the Crocodile Stitch Afghan Block Crochet Pattern.
The Crocodile Flower afghan square can be found on Ravelry as a paid pattern from Joyce Lewis. The directions are definitely a bit difficult to follow and it’s not meant for the beginner crocheter. There’s something you should know before starting this pattern: you”ll need to know how to do a few special stitches, like crocodile stitch, bubble stitch, long double crochet (ldc), so this pattern is really not a beginners pattern.
