Now that you know how to chain (If you don't, check the previous post) We are going to tackle single crochet/double crochet, abbreviates as sc or dc in patterns
I suggest making a chain of at least 20, just to practice the stitch.
I don't know if I pictured it really well, but usually I wrap the yarn around the hook (from back to front) while it is facing up, and then turn the hook down to pull through.
Again, wrap the yarn while hook is up and then twist to pull. It makes things so much easier!
That is: pushing the hook into the next chain, wrapping once (back to front) and pulling through one loop. Then another wrap (back to front) and pull this loop through the two remaining loops to complete the stitch.
(there was a mistake in the next photo, so it has been removed)
Sc/Dc into every the top of every stitch of the previous row. Start by pushing hook through the top of the first stitch, wrap yarn over (back to front) and pull up the loop. yarn over, and pull through remaining loops on hook.
I recommend doing a few rows at least to practice the stitch, even if you unpick it all to re use the yarn.
Remember to keep all stitches even, and not too tight.
Next up will be a project that only uses this stitch and chain stitch, covered in previous post.
