How To Crochet For Beginners: Easy Single Crochet | Tutorial DIY


so in the last episode we learned how to
crochet the basic chain I’ll have that link down below if you missed it next
thing we need to learn is how to do the single crochet or SC if you’re reading a
pattern this is super easy and will give you the basic understanding for
everything else in crochet so I’ll be showing you two methods just like before
the first will be the pencil method and second will be the knife method then
knots will be the same the only difference is the grip and as for this
project I’ll be using a category for medium weight yarn and the recommended
five millimeter hook so to start this off we’re going to start off with a
chain and I’m going to make a chain of 10 so just like before go ahead and make
a slipknot take your hook insert it onto the loop and make a chain of 10 so once
we have our chain 10 we’re going to be working with the pencil method first so
we’re going to block off that last chain that we did meaning we’re just going to
pinch it with our thumb and our middle finger and then we’re gonna hold our
hook and then from here we’re going to do one extra chain so we’re going to
have 11 in total but we’re not going to do anything into that 11th loop and from
here we’re going to insert a hook into that loop that we blocked off or the
second loop from the hook and just as a tip you can insert your hook into any of
these loops that we do have but I like to turn my work so that you can very
clearly see the ridges on the back and then so once when you do that you don’t
make the bottom of the work look a lot cleaner well from here we’re going to be
inserting our hook into the second loop from the hook so we’re skipping the
first one we’re going to insert our hook into the second loop just like that then
we’re gonna be yarning over just like how we’ve been doing with the chains I’m
going to yarn over pull through one loop and from here you’re gonna slide it down
the hook a little bit so you can see it better and from here we’re going to yarn
over and pull through two loops and this is our single crochet let’s go ahead and
do this one more time go ahead and insert your hook into the next loop that
we have we’re going to yarn over pull through
one loop yarn over and pull through two loops and this is our pencil method
single crochet so we just got done doing five single crochet doing the pencil
method and next we’re going to be doing the knife method which is my preferred
method so from here we’re going to make sure that our hook is facing outwards
then we’re just going to insert our hook into the first loop just like so and
just like before when we’re using the pencil method there’s two loops go ahead
and yarn over pull through the first loop yarn over pull through the second
loop let’s do that one more time so we’re going to pull the hook down insert
it up into our next loop yarn over pull through one loop yarn over pull through
two loops and this is our single crochet nice method and now we have our first
row of single crochet go ahead and give yourself a round of applause but from
here I’m going to show you just how to start the second row in most patterns so
remember in the beginning how we did a chain 10 and then we chained up one
extra we’re going to do the same thing for the second row we’re going to chain
up one extra we’re going to flip our work and then we’re not going to do
anything into this chain one that we made so we’re going to go into the first
loop which is this one right here with a single crochet so that’s how we build up
one row and then work up the next and now you guys are single crochet experts
