Single Crochet Stitch

The Single Crochet Stitch, sc, is the shortest and most basic of all the crochet stitches.

Remember, you will never work in the first chain from the crochet hook, unless specifically instructed to do so by the pattern you are working.

How to Work the Single Crochet Stitch

Step 1: Make a slip knot and chain 6. Skip the first chain from the crochet hook, insert your hook into the second chain through the center of the V and under the back bar of the chain. Bring the yarn over the hook from back to front.

Draw the yarn through the chain and up onto the working area of the crochet hook. You will now have two loops on your hook.

You will now have one loop remaining on the hook; you have made one single crochet.

Step 3: Insert hook in the next chain as before, hook the yarn from back to front and draw it through the chain stitch. Yarn over again and draw through both loops.

Repeat step 3 in each remaining chain, taking care to work in the last chain, but not in the slip knot. Remember, as you work, to be careful not to twist the chain; keep all the Vs facing you. You have completed one row of single crochet and should now have five stitches in the row.
