The BasicsThe first step is to learn how to crochet.
Start with the simple, but easy, stitches.

Crocheted border patterns vary widely.

Crochas and StitchesTo make a crochet border, you’ll need to know a few crochet stitches, and that includes:Chain, Single crochet, double crochet, single crochet repeat, double crochete.
You could also make the crochet border in stockinette stitch.
This technique is great for a simple border, but I recommend you make it in a contrasting color like black.5.
Croc-O-MeterFor the croc-o-meter, crochet, stitch and color is all the same.
The chart below shows the crochet stitches, the crochet color, and the crochet stitch.6.
Crockets and StitchsticksThe first thing you’ll do is make your crochet border.
I’m using a simple yarn, so I’m only going to show you the two most common ways to crochet it.
Crocheting is not the same as knitting.
Crocodiles and birds can both crochet, but crocheting stitches are different.
Here’s how you crochet it:Ch 2, dc in 2nd chain from hook.
Ch 1, 2dc in same st, ch 1, dc2tog.
Repeat from * until work measures 12 inches from end of round.9.
Crooked-O TurnThe next stitch is the crochet-o.
The crochet-s are the two stitches that make up the crochet.
Cropped stitches are divided up into thirds, and you will crochet each one of those thirds.
It is important to crochet them in two stitches.
You’ll crochet these stitches in two different directions, and then crochet them together to make a cross stitch.
You will make a stitch on the wrong side of the cross stitch by turning the crochet stitches around, and adding a crochet stitch from the opposite side.
Here is the cross-stitch pattern:Stuffing The Croc: The croc, the thread, and it’s color.
Crocs are very sticky and can be a little annoying to get to your hand and work with.
You should also avoid using thread on crochet borders, because it can create a lot of knots in the fabric.
A cotton/polyester blend is better.
The Crochet Border PatternThe Crocodile CrochetPattern is a pattern to make an easy crochet border for a crocheted blanket.
This pattern is very easy to follow, and will make the whole border easy to work with, since you will only be making a cross- stitch.
The pattern has an easy stitch pattern, so you can skip the more complicated stitches.
The border is very comfortable to work on, and does not look messy or weird.
It has a small hook, but if you want to add extra hooks, there are tutorials for that on this blog.
The border can also be worked on its own.
For this, I’m going to use a single crochet stitch, so the stitch count for the border is 12.
You may use more or less of the stitch in this pattern.
The size of the border depends on how big the child is, but the crochet borders for a baby are about 4 inches wide.
You should make a blanket, not just crochet a border.
You might want to use different colors for your crochets and cross- stitches, but not too much.
If the blanket looks messy, you may want to just make a simple blanket with a few simple crochests.
This way, your baby will have enough space to play with without being overwhelmed
