Single Crochet

The most simple of all crochet stitches (bar the slip stitch of course which we’ll cover later in the series), single crochet is easy to learn and produces a wonderfully dense texture. Use it for scarves, use it for cardigans, use it for hats ….. use it for whatever takes your fancy 🙂

I appreciate not everyone learns the same way so take your time and either watch the short video or follow the written instructions below. Either way, I hope you enjoy it!

  1. Chain 11 stitches
  2. In the second chain from the hook, slip the hook through the first stitch
  3. Wrap the yarn over the hook and draw the hook back through  (2 stitches on the hook)
  4. Wrap the yarn back over the hook and draw the hook back through both stitches (1 stitch on hook)
  5. Repeat to the end of the row (10 stitches completed)
  6. Chain 1, turn your work, continue as above but starting in the first stitch from the hook

I told you it was simple 🙂
