Welcome to Part 3 of Crochet 101! If you missed the previous posts, you’ll want to start there first:
Today, we’re going to learn how to do another type of stitch, called a Single Crochet. When reading a crochet pattern, single crochet is abbreviated “sc“. In order to make a single crochet, you have to have a foundation first, like a chain or a row of another kind of stitch. Since what we know how to do is chain, that’s going to be our foundation!
Let’s start out by making a slip knot and chaining 10. If we were reading a pattern for what we’re doing, it would look like this:
Foundation: ch 10
Then pull it through BOTH loops. That’s it! A single crochet!
