How to Single Crochet – Step-by-Step Guide to Single Crochet Stitch

Learning to crochet can be a great experience once you have mastered all of the basics. And when we think of the basic crochet steps, we think of the single crochet stitch. If you are new to the craft you are in luck: as part of our GH Stitch Club we show beginners all basic knitting and crochet techniques including how to do a single crochet.

A single hook is the most basic and in some cases the most important step to take before creating a project (FYI: we have a bunch of great options to choose from here) because there are so many ways to work it. You can make baby booties, hat and scarf using only single crochet stitches. Once you are done, you can continue working on your own with the single crochet or combine it with other stitches, depending on what you are doing.

To note: In the video above, we are using two strands of yarn for crochet, but usually you will only use one.
