I'm not bad at crochet - I wouldn't classify myself as a beginner - perhaps Intermediate, but for the life of me, I cannot grasp the stitch I want to learn the most - crocodile stitch.

I've tried for quite some time focusing on tutorials on YouTube and I just can't grasp it - can anyone point me in the direction of a foolproof crocodile stitch tutorial? I want very badly to use this stitch all over crochet-land!

I've tried:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RUNtrp_Vj4o


And my apparently thick skull just can't comprehend the turning part and where to go into next.

Please help?

Fear not it took me a long while to grasp the concept of crocodile stitch, many tears and tantrums were had and shouting of "I can do more complicated stuff than this, why can't I do it!!" I was missing the sl st between "scales" which is where I was going wrong.
