Learn to make the single crochet, and how to place it in the front loop only or the back loop only. There are 2 videos, one with just the basic single crochet, and the second which shows turning your rows, and working in the front loop or back loop only. There are written instructions with photos, and a practice piece at the end so you can improve your skills. There are also a few patterns linked at the end to put the single crochet to use!

This video will show you the basics of making a single crochet.

Single crochet is abbreviated as “sc.”

sc ~ single crochet
st ~ stitch
yo ~ yarn over

Sc ~ insert hook into next st, yo and pull through st, (2 loops on hook), yo and pull through both loops.

Here are some photo stills to show the making of the sc. The sample shown is made with Red Heart With Love yarn and a 6.00mm hook.
