How to Crochet The Single Crochet

Learn to Crochet The Single Crochet Video Tutorial and Stitch Pattern

Beginner crocheters listen up, the single crochet stitch is really the most fundamental, basic stitch you can learn in crochet. It's important that this is where you start in your journey of learning to crochet. Well, first I would recommend learning how to crochet a chain. A chain is what we will use to start almost any crochet project. (If you are familiar with knitting, a chain is basically the crochet equivalent of casting on.) But as far as stitches go, I would recommend any crochet beginner learn the single crochet first, then the double crochet. Learning all other stitches will be easier after that.

Just because the single crochet is basic does not mean it can’t stand on its own. You could use just a single crochet to stitch up just about anything from washcloths, scarves, or afghans/ blankets/ throws.

Single Crochet Stitch Pattern

Begin with a chain of any number of stitches.

Row 1: Beginning in the second chain from the hook, work 1 single crochet in each stitch across. Chain 1, turn.

Repeat this row until you reach the desired length of your project.

I will be including this stitch in a project I’m soooo excited to share with you all. Until then feel free to learn it for whatever you want to stitch up next.
