Crochet 101: Single Crochet

How to make a single crochetLearning to crochet can take a little bit of time and practice, but is a hobby that you can enjoy your entire life. Not to mention the fact that you can also make some pretty great items for your wardrobe and home.

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.

Materials


Directions


Start by making a chain.

When you are following a crochet pattern, it will tell you how many chains away from the hook your first stitch should be placed.

This is the first chain.

Tip: The loop that's around your hook is not counted.
And this is the second chain.

For our purposes we are going to put our first sc (single crochet) in the second chain from the hook.
How to Single Crochet

Insert the hook into the second chain from the hook.
Bring the yarn over the hook from back to front.
Pull the hook from left to right, catching the yarn in the hook.
Gently pull the yarn through the chain.
Now you have two loops on the hook.
Bring the yarn over the hook again. Slide the hook from left to right, catching the yarn in the hook.
Gently pull the yarn through both loops.
Yipee! Your first sc.

Let's make another.
Insert your hook into the next chain.
Bring the yarn over the hook.
Pull it through the chain so you have two loops on your hook.
Bring the yarn over your hook.
Pull the yarn through both loops.

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.
