Crocodile Crochet Baby Mittens

Crocodile Crochet Baby Mittens

Crocodile Crochet Baby Mittens have transpired from my crocodile crochet craze. It all transpired when I started searching for a way to decrease the crocodile scales. Some people suggested gauging down hook size through the piece, some people decreased chains between shells or gathered the work to close it off, but nothing about how to decrease the scales.

I had given up the search and believed that there was no way, that is until that night when I was late night hooking a crocodile cowl when I made some mistakes. I looked at my work in hopes that I could maybe work with what I’d done and that is when it hit me, I figured out how to decrease the scales!!

I made a beanie then of course I got the idea for a bonnet, now I’m working on multiple sizes of the beanies and bonnets. One of my testers asked about a pair of mittens to match the Newborn Crocodile Crochet Bonnet. I found sizing for mittens over at kiwi-sheepskins and worked up a quick and simple pattern that is available free!
