Dragon Scale Head Kerchief – Free Pattern

My first WordPress Exclusive Pattern!

This simple Crocodile Stitch Head Kerchief was something I promised myself that I would make for my daughter if I had yarn left from making her shrug. Well, I did and here it is. I thought I would share how I made this in pattern format and I though it could go hand-in-hand with my photo tutorial, Crocodile Stitch – Increases, if you are new to this technique.

This is actually easy to make, but it’s not really for brand new beginner crocheters, maybe advanced beginner, if you are familiar to working around the post of a stitch. For intermediate/advanced crocheters, this should be no problem at all to make.

Now also available in Knitsy Magazine Issue #25!
