To start learning how to crochet the single crochet stitch you will need just a few items to begin. Make sure you have some yarn (any weight will work) and a corresponding crochet hook size to the yarn you are using.
I like to use worsted weight yarn for my tutorials. If you’d like to use the same I would suggest Vanna’s Choice by Lion Brand Yarn. You can find this yarn found online on Amazon or in your local craft stores. You will also need a 6.00 mm size J crochet hook.Learn how to Single Crochet Today! Great for Beginners!Click To Tweet

HOW TO SINGLE CROCHET
- Crochet Hook (size as directed by the type of yarn you have chosen). If you are in the market for a new set I highly suggest a Clover Hook Set.
- Read over the tutorial once or twice then begin to work up the single crochet. I suggest as a beginner to go over this a few times until you get the hang of it. Remember you are not perfect so it may not look exactly like the picture at first but if you keep on trying you will get the hang of the single crochet stitch fast.
Single Crochet Tutorial
FIRST: Make a slip knot to attach yarn to hook
SECOND: Yarn over and pull yarn back through the loop, repeating until you have a chained 9 (that is the number I did for this tutorial) then turn your work.
THIRD: Insert hook into second chain from hook
FOURTH: Yarn over
FIFTH: Pull yarn back through the loop, now you will have 2 loops on the hook
SIXTH: Yarn over
SEVENTH: Pull yarn back through both loops on hook and a single crochet stitch is completed!
FINISING THE FIRST ROW: Insert hook into next chain and repeat steps 3-7 until you reach the end of the row (always inserting hook into next chain after a single crochet is completed)
SECOND ROW: To do a second row chain 1 and insert hook into second chain from hook through both loops
FINSIING THE SECOND ROW: Repeat steps 3-7 across row until you reach the end of the row.
Remember, if you would like to make more rows you need to always chain 1 at the end of each row and turn your work before starting a new row of single crochets.
That’s it! You made a single crochet stitch! Feel free to go back over this again to get the hang of this fun stitch and you will be crocheting up projects in no time at all!
