crochet 101 :: single crochet

Crochet 101 is a series of crochet tutorials where I will teach you how to complete the basic stitches needed to crochet.

Hi :) 

Welcome back to another Crochet 101!

We now know how to:

• Make a slip knot
Chain stitch
Slip stitch (part II)

Let's move on to lesson 5:
Most crochet patterns incorporate the single crochet. It is one of the easiest stitches to master. Once you have learned this stitch, you can use it on its own, or along with other stitches to create a beautiful piece.

Let's get started!
You will need:

In this post, I show you where to look for what type of hook you will need for your yarn.

Step 1:
Make a slip knot.

Step 2:
Make a starting chain.

For this tutorial, we will be making a row of 10 single crochet stitches, so you will need a starting chain of 11. (10 chains will be for the stitches and the extra 1 chain will be for the turning chain.) We will be working our first stitch in the second chain from the hook. (Pictured above in the purple circle.)

Step 3: 

Insert your hook into the second chain from the hook and yarn over.

Step 4:

Pull the yarn through the loop.

There are now 2 loops on your hook.

Step 5:
Yarn over.

Step 6:

Pull the yarn through both loops on the hook.

Your first single crochet is complete.

Insert your hook into the next stitch and yarn over.

Pull the yarn through.

There are now 2 loops on your hook.

Yarn over.

Pull the yarn through both loops on the hook.

There are now 2 completed single crochets.

Repeat steps 3-6 until you get to the end of the row.
This is what it should look like when you get to the end of your first row of single crochet. There should be 10 single crochet stitches.

Below is a video I made to show these steps in action. I have slowed the video down so that every step is seen. I have also added music to the video because I filmed this video with my phone and I have no idea how to mute the background while recording. Feel free to mute if piano is not your thing lol

Seems easy enough right? :)

Thanks for stopping by, keep practicing, and I will see you tomorrow for our next lesson!
