1 Insert the hook under both front and back loops (or, under the complete “V”) of the 2nd chain from the hook. Wrap the yarn over the hook from back to front (yarn over) and draw it through the V.
2 You now have two loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull the yarn through both loops. You’ve just made one single crochet stitch.
3 Repeat steps 1-2 until you reach the end of the row.
4 At the end of the row, make one single chain stitch (a turning chain), then flip the piece from left to right (horizontally).
5 To start the next row, insert the hook under the V of the first stitch (ignore the chain you just made) and repeat the steps.
Once you’ve mastered the single crochet stitch check out these patterns! From a wrap, to a pillow, to a clutch one of these will be a perfect project to perfect your single crochet stitch on.
