In lesson 2, we learned how to make a foundation chain. Lesson 3 shows how to make the single crochet stitch, work into a chain, and work into regular stitches. We start by working a row of single crochet stitches into our foundation chain. Then, we turn our work and work a second row of single crochet stitches. The video also shows how to count your stitches, and how to recognize the different parts of a single crochet stitch.
Most of my regular readers are already accomplished crocheters. If any of you know someone who might want to learn, please pass this along!
The Learn to Crochet Series
If you’ve never picked up a hook before, and don’t quite know where to start, the Learn to Crochet Series is designed just for you. This series of tutorials goes through how to get started, and some of the most basic stitches and techniques. By the end of the series, you’ll be ready to test your skills with some beginner patterns.
A new video will be released approximately once a week, until the series is completed. You can find the entire Learn to Crochet series here, and as new videos come out, they will be added to that page. Next week, I’ll show you the double crochet stitch!
