How to Single Crochet
The basic stitches you will use are Single Crocheting, Half Double Crochet, Double Crochet and the Slip Stitch.
There are many types of crochet stitches, but those are the stitches used most often. (We’ll learn the rest later)
I have typed out the directions on how to Single Crochet, but it is best to watch the video.
What you need:
Yarn: Try a big skein of Red Heart from Walmart – the cheap stuff is good for practice.
Hook: G or H
With the chain in front of you, put the hook through the second chain from the hook.
Grab the yarn with the hook and pull it through the hole
Yarn over and draw the hook through both loops.
Most common appreciations:
ch = Chain (not really a stitch)
sc = Single Crochet
hdc = Half Double Crochet
dc = Double Crochet
slst = Slip Stitch
yo = yarn over
