Single Crochet (SC)

Single crochet is a great basic stitch and one that I use in many of my patterns!

How to make the Single Crochet Stitch:

   
Insert your hook into the stitch and draw up a loop. Yarn over and pull through both loops. 

Chain any number.

Row 1 (right side): SC into the 2nd chain from the hook and in each chain across. Turn your work over.

Row 2: CH 1, SC into the first stitch and into every stitch across. 

Repeat row 2 until you have reached your desired length.

 

Half Double Crochet (HDC)

Half double crochet is a basic stitch and a little taller than SC. It's one of my personal favorite stitches to use!

 How to make the Half Double Crochet Stitch:

      

 Yarn over, insert your hook into the stitch and draw up a loop. Yarn over and pull through all 3 loops.

 

Chain any number.

Row 1 (right side): HDC into the 3rd chain from the hook and into every chain across. 

Row 2: CH 2, HDC into the first stitch and into every stitch across. 

Repeat row 2 until you have reached your desired length. 

 

Double Crochet (DC)

Double crochet is also another great basic stitch to learn. It is a little taller than the HDC stitch and is great for any project!

How to make the Double Crochet Stitch:

      
Yarn over, insert your hook into the stitch and draw up a loop. Yarn over and pull through 2 loops. Yarn over and pull through the last 2 loops.

Chain any number. 

Row 1 (right side): DC into the 4th chain from the hook and into every stitch across. 

Row 2: CH 3 (this counts as your first DC stitch), skip the very first stitch and make a DC into the next stitch. DC into every stitch across, including the turning chain. 

Repeat row 2 until you have reached your desired length. 

  

Bobble Stitch

This is a great stitch to really make your projects pop! 

How to make the Bobble Stitch:

      
Yarn over, insert your hook into the stitch and draw up a loop. Yarn over and pull through 2 loops. Repeat the process 4 more times. You will have 6 loops left on your hook. Yarn over and pull through all 6 loops. 

 

Chain any odd number. 

Row 1 (right side): SC into the 2nd chain from the hook. Bobble into the next stitch, SC into the next* all the way across. Your very last stitch will be a SC. Turn your work.

Row 2: CH 1, SC into the first stitch. *Bobble into the next stitch, SC into the next* all the way across the row. You will end with a SC stitch. Turn your work.

Repeat row 2 until you have reached your desired length.
