Dragon’s Breath Neck Warmer



Click on the link to view the video, follow along with the pattern.

I know the Crocodile Stitch can be hard. Shoot, I just couldn’t stand that the back of the work, which you are supposed to HIDE is the star of the show in this stitch, but it works.

I tried my best to be as clear with my descriptions as I went in the video. I tried my best to get as close as I could so you didn’t miss a beat. I put titles on EVERY scene so that if you skip through the video you can see where I am in the pattern.

I hope you enjoy this crochet video tutorial and free crochet pattern. If you like it, please share with all you crochet friends and let me know how your project turned out by posting it on Instagram and tagging me @martiancreations. Happy crocheting!

Through my 15+ years of crocheting, I have made it my goal to show the world we are more than just doily and blanket makers. And as a curious DIY crafter, I’m always getting into other projects away from the hook and yarn too.
