There are many ways of doing the crocodile st and I think this is the easiest.

 

The pdf is here that you can download for free

I may do further versions in the future, so this shall be version 1 and is used in pattern 299. 

  • So to start there should be a multiple of 8 plus 5ch to start (ie 13, 21, 29 ch)
  • USA-Row 1: 1dc into ch-5 from hook (the 4ch acts as 1tr, 1ch), * ch2, miss 3sts, (1tr, 1ch, 1tr) into next st, rep from * to end, turn

    UK-Row 1: 1tr into 5th ch from hook (the 4ch acts as 1tr, 1ch), * 2ch, miss 3sts, (1tr, 1ch, 1tr) into next st, rep from * to end, turn

  • USA-Row 2: ch1, 5fpdc into last dc of previous row, (working from top to bottom of dc), ch1, 5fpdc into next dc (working from bottom to top of dc), * sk ch-2, sl.st into next ch1-sp, sk ch-2, 5fpdc into next dc (working from top to bottom of dc), ch1, 5fpdc into next dc (working from bottom to top of dc), rep from * to end, turn (3 scales)

    UK-Row 2: 1ch, 5fptr into last tr of previous row, (working from top to bottom of tr), 1ch, 5fptr into next tr (working from bottom to top of tr), * miss 2ch, sl.st into next 1ch.sp, miss 2ch, 5fptr into next tr (working from top to bottom of tr), 1ch, 5fptr into next tr (working from bottom to top of tr), rep from * to end, turn (3 scales)

  • USA- Row 3: ch1, sl.st into the middle of the scale, ch4 (counts as 1dc, ch-1), 1dc into base of ch-4, * ch2, (1dc, ch1, 1dc) in between scales (into same place as sl.st from previous row), ch2, (1dc, ch1, 1dc) into middle of scale, rep from * to end, turn

    UK- Row 3: 1ch, sl.st into the middle of the scale, 4ch (counts as 1tr, 1ch), 1tr into base of 4ch, * 2ch, (1tr, 1ch, 1tr) in between scales (into same place as sl.st from previous row), 2ch, (1tr, 1ch, 1tr) into middle of scale, rep from * to end, turn

  • USA- Row 4: ch1, sl.st into ch1-sp, * sk ch-2, 5fpdc into next dc (working from top to bottom of dc), ch1, 5fpdc into next dc (working from bottom to top of dc), sk ch-2, sl.st into next ch1-sp, rep from * to end, turn

    UK- Row 4: 1ch, sl.st into 1ch.sp, * miss 2ch, 5fptr into next tr (working from top to bottom of tr), 1ch, 5fptr into next tr (working from bottom to top of tr), miss 2ch, sl.st into next 1ch.sp, rep from * to end, turn

  • USA-Row 5: ch1, sl.st (into same place as sl.st from previous row), ch4 (counts as 1dc, ch-1), 1dc into base of ch-4, * ch2, (1dc, ch1, 1dc) into middle of scale, ch2, (1dc, ch1, 1dc) in between scales (into same place as sl.st), rep from * to end, turn

    UK- Row 5: 1ch, sl.st (into same place as sl.st from previous row), 4ch (counts as 1tr, 1ch), 1tr into base of 4ch, * 2ch, (1tr, 1ch, 1tr) into middle of scale, 2ch, (1tr, 1ch, 1tr) in between scales (into same place as sl.st), rep from * to end, turn

  • USA-Row 6: ch1, 5fpdc into last dc of previous row, (working from top to bottom of dc), ch1, 5fpdc into next dc (working from bottom to top of dc), * sk ch-2, sl.st into next ch1-sp, sk ch-2, 5fpdc into next dc (working from top to bottom of dc), ch1, 5fpdc into next dc (working from bottom to top of dc), rep from * to end, turn

    UK-Row 6: 1ch, 5fptr into last tr of previous row, (working from top to bottom of tr), 1ch, 5fptr into next tr (working from bottom to top of tr), * miss 2ch, sl.st into next 1ch.sp, miss 2ch, 5fptr into next tr (working from top to bottom of tr), 1ch, 5fptr into next tr (working from bottom to top of tr), rep from * to end, turn

  • So for each scale you see it is actually 2 rows, you build the structure then add the scales on top

    Basically all crocodile sts are the same it can just be the under structure that varies

    We do hope this has helped :)
