Has anyone tried the crocodile stitch? I’m running into a problem, and I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong. The pattern asks for a multiple of 6. Pinch the last sts, ch3, dc in stitch you have pinched, creating 2 dc for the beginning of the work. Ch 2, skip 2, and do 2 DC in the 3rd stitch. Pattern repeats across, slip knot is not counted. I put that note in there because when I get to the last set of DC, I ch2, skip 2…but there is no 3rd stitch. 4 times I ripped out and tried again, keeping it to 18 chains, pinch, chain 3, dc in pinched chain, ch2, skip 2…always the same issue. I have no clue what I’m doing wrong and I’ve been crocheting 18 years.
When watching the video from “The Crochet Crowd” I noticed they go through the “center” of the chain, with the “front” and “back” loops on top. I only crochet from the top, and when I consult my crochet books, they all say it’s merely a matter of preference, but I’m wondering if that creates the problem? I don’t know.
