Once you know how to make a slip knot and chain, the next stitch you need to learn is the single crochet.
You can use any type of yarn as you are learning basic stitches, but as a beginner I recommend cotton because it is inexpensive and not very stretchy.
- Lily Sugar 'n Cream Yarn in Potpourri (or other color of your choice)
- Boye Aluminum 6-Inch Crochet Hook, H8/5mm
Start by making a chain.
How to Single Crochet
Continue making single crochets across the entire chain.
When you get to the end of the row, ch 1 and repeat the same steps to sc in each stitch the other direction and keep practicing. As you work, try to make each single crochet the same size as the last.
My next post will be twice as much fun and I'll show you how to double crochet.
