Single Crochet (sc)


Hi again loves, 


In this blog, I would like to tell you about the single crochet.  The single crochet though being a basic stitch is by no means unsophisticated.  It can be done in the rounds or rows and creates a very dense crochet pattern with hardly any gaps or holes.  It can be used for items like coasters, dish/washrags to name a few that need no draping, etc.  Making a few modifications to the way in which you do the single crochet can give you some amazing results.  


How to do the single crochet (sc)?  Follow along...

Do a chain of say 15...


Insert your hook into the second chain from the hook

yarn over and pull up a loop

Yarn over and pull through both loops on the hook... and just like that the single crochet is completed.  Quite easy don't you think.

Here are a few pics of a swatch being worked up...

Here are a few things that you can use the single crochet for:
