If you want to make your own, these were done on a number 6 hook with chunky wool. King Cole Riot.

This is not a pattern for beginners, it’s more of a rough guide.

Chain 18 and slipstitch together.

SC for 4 rows

Make foundation chain for scales (see the crochet section of the Rag Baby Youtube Channel for help with this)

Chain 4, Tr in same place. Miss 2 stitches 1Tr, miss 2 stitches 2Tr in same place….. until you have 4 sets of 2Tr, you may have to juggle the distance between Tr for the last few stitches.

Work 3 rows of Crocodile stitch then about 12 rows of sc. Finish with picot edging.
