apparently it is called a crocodile or alligator stitch.Here is a link to instructions for the stitch-unfortunately not the shawl yet.
If your mom is experienced with crochet she may be able to devise the pattern- basically a triangle shape.
Here’s another pattern that uses a variation of the crocodile stitch:
Here’s one answer to a query re how to do the stitch:
I don’t have a specific pattern, but it looks to me like they started with a row that had loops of about 5 chain stitches every 2 inches or so. Then they came back on the second row and did about 16 double or triple crochets in each of those loops. On the next group they staggered the loops so that the scales would “tile.”
I think it I were going to try to recreate this, I’d make a sort of net of the rows with the loops to fit the shape of the overall piece, and then go back row by row and add the scales onto the loops.
Here’s a link to a stitch that crafters say is the same stitch:
This crafter made a shawl using the same stitch as the teacozy.
This was her inspiration .
Good luck with your project!
