Crochet Lesson 2
The single crochet (abbreviated sc) is the most fundamental of all stitches in crocheting. The single crochet stitch creates a tight stitch where there are less holes in your project. Once you know how to single crochet, you can use this stitch over and over again, by it self or in combination with other stitches. I think this is the best stitch for beginners to start with.
A single crochet stitch is done by creating a chain and completing a series of yarn overs.
1. Crochet 17 chain stitches.
2. Insert the hook from front to back into the second chain from the hook.
3. With your yarn hand, wrap the yarn from back to front over the hook.
4. Rotate the throat of the hook toward you with your hook hand, and pull the hook with the wrapped yarn through the stitch.
5. With your yarn hand, wrap the yarn from back to front over the hook.
7. To work the next single crochet stitch and continue the row, insert your hook into the next chain stitch. Work 1 single crochet stitch (sc) in each chain stitch (ch) across the chain.
