This is the perfect first stitch to learn and it’s super easy to do. This stitch is used in most patterns so it’s definitely one to master right away. Single crochet stitches form a sturdy and dense fabric which makes this stitch great for bags, amigurumi and more.
Just as popular as single crochet, double crochet is just double the length of a single crochet stitch. It’s a great stitch for quick projects as the longer the stitch, the more ground you cover in a faster amount of time. Double crochet is likely the most popular stitch out there because it’s great for blankets and shawls and the projects go by quickly.
