In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to knit an unusual stitch, and a great textured motif: The Crocodile stitch.
This is one of those special knitting patterns, a stitch you don’t see every day, that will you fall in love at first sight! It’s easy to knit (much easier than it looks), perfect for knitting a unique cardigan or a sweater with an elegant touch.
I believe it may be from the same family as the Seagull stitch: refined and textured, great for knitting a big piece!
CO: Cast on
RS: Right side of the work
yo: Yarn over
passyo: Pass the yarn over the last two stitches

How to knit the Crocodile stitch
CO multiples of 4 + 1, i.e.: 4 * 3 = 12 + 1 = 13 stitches
1º and 3º rows (RS): K across
2º row: P1, *yo, P2, passyo, P2*. Repeat from * to *, to end.
4º row: P1, *P2, yo, P2, passyo*. Repeat from * to *, to end.
These four rows create the pattern and will be repeated until the desire length is reached.
When finish, BO knitwise after a row four.
It’s time to watch the video!
Hugs and happy knitting,
