Crocodile Stitch

For more WIPs, visit Tami's Amis

I've been trying out the crocodile stitch this week. My first attempt refused to lay flat.  I kept looking at pictures online and thinking "That's not what mine looks like."

Hmmmmm, what was I doing wrong.  I searched and searched... until finally I discovered that crocodile stitch requires a larger hook, just like amigurumi are best with a smaller hook.
I started over with some much thinner yarn and an I hook.  With blocking it should lay flat perfectly.  Yay! It's such a fun technique!  I am working on this pattern and hoping to be finished by the end of the week :)

Have you ever tried crocodile stitch?  What is your favorite pattern for this stitch?
