Are you wondering how to complete the single crochet stitch? You've come to the right place! I am a Craft Yarn Council Certified Instructor. Rest assured that I want you to learn the easiest, and most accurate, method possible.
I offer video, picture and written tutorials. Crochet is an extremely relaxing hobby and there are many benefits to learning how to crochet. If you've been looking for a hobby that will allow you to enter into a meditative state of mind, this is it! Let's begin!
Let's briefly look at what this stitch is all about. Projects made with this stitch create a fabric with minimal gaps. If you're making a garment with this fabric, there will be little drape. Maybe you're making a bra and that's a good thing! However, if you're making a sweater (or god forbid, a blanket) with this stitch, it's going to take you more time than some of the taller stitches would take. Amigurumi, kitchen wares, and small projects are the best uses of this stitch.

⛓️ Turning chains
Turning chains are made at the end of a row, or round, in order to bring the hook and yarn up to the height of the next row. This keeps the edges of your project even and prevents them from warping.
For single crochet, you will always chain one. The turning chain does not count as a stitch.
