Example text

Now that you have a “base chain,” you can crochet any type of basic stitches into it—but we’ll begin by crocheting a row of single crochet stitches. The trickiest part here is inserting the hook into the chain—there are a number of ways to do it, as you’ll see later, but the method I give below seems to be the one that is most technically correct. Try it first, then give the other methods a whirl. The good news is that once you’ve got that hook in the right spot, completing the single crochet is a breeze.

But even with loose chains, it can be tough to get the hook in 2. Once the hook is through, the rest is pretty simple: Twirl the hook from left to right (counterclockwise) around the working yarn so that the strand lies across its throat, turn the nose of the hook so that it grabs the yarn and faces left, and pull the loop through. Now you’ve got two loops on the hook. Hurray! 3. Push the hook up through those two loops about an inch and twirl it around the working strand again, same way as before.

Pay careful attention to how you are working the ending and beginning of your rows. Try getting at least 4 rows of work that remains the same width (even if it’s less than 20 stitches). Then we can talk. Now, take a close look at your single crochet work. With all that yarning over and pulling loops through loops, the structure of an individual crochet stitch can be less than obvious. Figuring out where one stitch ends and another begins can be especially challenging. If you examine the last row of stitches you made, you’ll see that a single crochet stitch is three-dimensional and, seen from the front, looks like a V with another V lying across the top of it, sort of like a lid.
