How to crochet a crocodile stitch

Tags: edge, lace,

In this DROPS video we show how to make the popular crocodile stitch - it's a fun crochet pattern.

Chain a multiples of 6 + 4, on our sample we chained 16.
Work all rows from RS, without turning work after each row.

Row 1: 1 treble crochet (tr) in 4th chain stitch (ch), *ch 2, skip 2 ch, 2 tr in next ch, repeat from * across.
Row 2: ch 3, 4 tr down around post on 1st tr, ch 1, 5 tr up around post on next tr, *ch 1, skip next set of 2 tr's, 5 tr down around post on next tr, ch 1, 5 tr up around post on next tr, repeat from * across.
Row 3: slip stitch (sl st) into center of last scale, ch 3, 1 tr in the same sp, *ch 2, 2 tr in between next set of 2 tr's and work around both layers, ch 2, 2 tr into center of next scale, repeat from * across.
Row 4: ch 1, skip 1 tr, *5 tr down around post on next tr, ch 1, 5 tr up around post on next tr, ch 1, skip next set of 2 tr's, repeat from * across, end with a sl st between last 2 tr's on row.
Row 5: ch 3, 1 tr in the same sp, *ch 2, 2 tr in center of next scale, ch 2, 2 tr in between next set of 2 tr's and work around both layers, repeat from * across.
Repeat row 2-5.

Ik ben bezig om bandjes met de krokodillensteek te maken. Ik moet 6 boogjes maken maar wat ik ook doe, het stekenaantal komt nooit uit. een meervoud van 6 voor 6 boogjes lijkt mij dan 36 steken te zijn + dan nog de 4 lossen. Maar dan houdt ik altijd 2 stokjes over. Ik heb geprobeerd met 6 steken meer en 6 steken minder maar hoe dan ook, ik houd 2 stokjes over. Hoe kan dat en wat doe ik verkeerd????
