Learn Single Crochet
The instructions below will show you how to make a foundation row and a single crochet stitch. If you follow them exactly, you’ll complete a 7″ by 9″ block, which will be great practice!
With these basics, you can make a scarf, hat, pillow, bag or any number of projects.
Beginner Crochet Block
What you need:
Worsted-weight yarn, any color or colors
Size G crochet hook;
Yarn needle with big eye
How to Begin
Step 2: Bring yarn over hook from back to front and grab it with hook.
Step 3: Draw hooked yarn through slip knot and onto hook. This makes one chain stitch.Repeat Steps 2 and 3 in sequence 28 more times. You should have 29 chain stitches and one loop will remain on hook.
Repeat Steps 5 and 6 in each of the remaining 27 chains — be sure to work in the very last chain. You have now completed one row of single crochet. Measure your work; it should be about 7″ wide. If it is too wide, try again with fewer beginning chains. If it is too narrow, try again with more beginning chains.
Step 7: At the end of the row, make one chain stitch, then turn the work counter-clockwise, leaving the hook in the chain. Now you can begin another row, working into the stitches of the previous row.
Thread yarn into yarn needle and weave back and forth through stitches to secure.
