The single crochet is one of the basic crochet stitches and is the quickest to pick up and get the hang of! Read on down for the full, FREE tutorial to get started!
To start learning how to crochet the single crochet stitch you will need just a few items to start.
You will need yarn and a corresponding crochet hook to begin! I like to use worsted weight yarn for my tutorials like Vanna’s Choice. 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.

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.
