Crocodile Crochet Stitch

Pinterest is dangerous.

It all started innocently enough. I was just browsing. Then I saw this.

It's the whole reason I learned to knit. I wanted to know how it worked. I didn't think that 20+ years later I'd spend all my time in front of the TV with a project in my hands.

And it still happens. When I see an interesting sweater or scarf, I wonder how it was made. If I can reverse engineer the thing, I can move on. But when I can't figure out how it was done, I must investigate. And I couldn't figure out how that crocodile scarf was done.

A little Internet search told me that it was a crochet thing. Okay, I can (sort of) crochet. And then I found this video...

It's 35 minutes long. I did not watch all 35 minutes. I watched enough to get the idea, and I was satisfied. But it got me thinking.

So, I've been playing with the stitch...

I'm having issues getting enough light, so apologies for the photo quality.
...and I think I've got the hang of it. Someday, this will be something. I just hope it'll be something really cool.
