I created this oven mitt by crocheting the crocodile stitch in the round. Working the crocodile stitch in the round is so much easier than making two panels to join together. While the oven mitt is very thick with the crocodile scales, I did line it just to be sure that a person’s hand was protected.
I have the free crochet pattern written below for the crocodile stitch oven mitt. If you haven’t tried working the crocodile scales yet in the round, I think you will enjoy crocheting this pattern. Please read the complete pattern through before beginning and adjust the opening should you need a larger size as my wrist is small so I made my opening tighter.

With Easter just around the corner, I have been busy crocheting Easter eggs and Peeps for Easter baskets. We are having a Easter CAL (craft a-long) over at our group on Ravelry. A cute Peeps aka marshmallow bunny crochet pattern was shared. This pattern is very quick and easy. Here are several of them that I crocheted. I used black fabric puff paint to add the eyes.
Here are some crocheted eggs I did. Delights shared her free egg pattern on Ravelry where she uses a plastic egg and then crochets the shell around the egg. I had the idea of crocheting the egg and then stuffing it with a recycled plastic bag. […]
I just finished up this crocheted baby pinafore and booties for a shower gift. I used a H (5 mm) crochet hook and Lt Country Peach Caron yarn to crochet both projects. Here is the link to the baby pinafore pattern which is called Angel Wings. I found the pinafore takes about 4+ ounces of yarn to complete.
I made a few changes to the pattern and worked it in the round after row 8. At the end of row 8, I joined with a slip stitch […]
I think I’m addicted to crocheting baby booties. Here is the latest size I created. These pink creamy toddler booties are crocheted using one strand of pink worst weight yarn and white fingering Orlon held together. The two strands together create what I call a pink creamy look so I named the booties from this appearance. I crocheted these booties using my baby sock booties pattern.
With the two strands of yarn, they will fit a toddler about 1 year old or so. The finished size is 4-1/2 inches long by 2-1/2 inches wide. I hope you enjoy this pattern as much as I have. […]
I thought I’d share my loaf pan carrier that I crocheted. I used the Crochet N More loaf tote pattern and did a few changes to fit my large loaf pan. A few people had commented on this pattern that it ran a bit small so I did a few modifications to make sure my loaf pan fit comfortably into the carrier tote.
I crocheted my loaf pan tote using two strands of Red Heart chunky yarn. The project used just under two skeins of RH Super Saver chunky yarn. I used two strands of Windsor colored yarn held together with a N (9 mm) crochet hook to work the pattern. I crocheted rows 2-12 of the pattern for a size of 5-3/4″ wide by 10-1/2″ long after row 12. After row 12 which is a repeat of row 6, I moved to row 14 and followed the patten thru row 16.
I used an H (5 mm) hook to work a single crochet (Sc) row around the top edge rather than doing the reverse Sc edging that the pattern called for. I did my edging row using just one strand of chunky yarn. […]
Here are my crocheted baby booties that feature a cuffed top. I did a variation of the original slipper sock pattern by Sharon Klinsky that can be found on several different crochet sites.
There is a wonderful picture tutorial of the original pattern over at Coffee n’Crafts blog site that I found very useful to understand the pattern. Just use a single strand of worst weight yarn for baby booties that will fit a baby up to 6 months old. For a preemie sized newborn, I used a smaller crochet hook and some sport-fingering yarn. If you are wondering, the creme-colored preemie socks shown below have a different stitch look because I turned the toe portion inside out before adding the ribbed heel. By reversing the toe portion, it results in a horizontal stitch look rather than a circular pattern.

Ch 2, work 5 Sc in 2nd ch from hook. Don’t join as the toe section is worked in rounds without joining. Place a stitch marker at the beginning of each round.[…]
One of my goals this year was to learn the crocodile stitch. I watched several you-tube videos on the stitch and while there are a few different variations, the stitch is generally crocheted the same. Some people work a chain stitch between scales and others end the rows a little differently.
Here is a quick and simple little crocheted baby bib pattern I came up with using the crocodile stitch. If you are learning this stitch for the first time, you may find this instructional post and video helpful as you learn the stitch. The crocodile stitch is easy once you get the hang of working the base rows and scale rows. I hope you enjoy crocheting the baby bib pattern and working the crocodile stitch.
