    Exclamation Single Crochet Tutorial

    I have done this tutorial with different colored yarns in sequence to make the stitches. I will be referring to each color in the pictures. I have tried to do this taking less pictures. So if you do not understand, please ask. In all pictures I will be referring to, I will go from top to bottom.

    Single Crochet Tutorial


    This tutorial will be done making 5 stitches.

    Top Yellow - Make a slip knot and chain 6. When working single crochet, you work your first stitch into the second chain from the hook. I have marked this stitch in black.

    Second White - Insert your hook into the second chain from the hook.

    Third Purple - Yarn over and draw through 1 loop. (2 loops remaining on hook.)

    Bottom White - Yarn over and draw through 2 loops. Single crochet completed. (1 loop on hook. )

    Continue these last 3 steps in the remaining 4 chains.

    Top Yellow - 5 single crochets complete. I have marked the first (on the right) middle and last stitches so you can see them.

    Bottom Purple - Chain 1 and turn.

    Note: When working in single crochet, you will always chain 1 and turn.

    This next picture is showing you the stitches from the top. The way I am holding it, my thumb (bottom of the picture) is the side that should be towards you after you chain 1 and turn.

    I have blackened the first stitch and the last stitch in the row. Remember to pick up both loops of a stitch unless the pattern you are using calls for working in the front or back loops only.

    1) Insert hook into the top of the first single crochet,

    2) yarn over,

    3) pull through 1 loop,

    4) yarn over, pull through 2 loops.

    Do these 4 steps in the next 4 single crochets.

    I have blackened where the last single crochet is to work into.
