A VERY Slow Demonstration on How To Crochet (Single Crochet Stitch)

This is a written and video tutorial on Single Crochet Stitch.  The video is a VERY slow demonstration for absolute beginners.  For this demonstration, I am making a scarf.
  1. Create a slipknot.  Then crochet 13 chain stitches. Chain 2 more stitches.IMG_0990 IMG_0991
  2.  Count down 2 loops from the edge and do a single crochet into the 3rd loop.
    • You will insert your hook into the 2nd loop.
    • Once the hook comes out the other side of the 2nd loop, wrap the yarn around your hook.
    • Now pull it back through.  You should see 2 loops on your hook.IMG_0992IMG_0993
  3. Wrap the yarn around your hook again and pull through the two loops. IMG_0994
  4. You will continue steps 2 & 3 into the next 12 chains.
  5. Once you reach the end, chain 2 additional and then rotate your work.  (you should always work from right to left)IMG_0995
  6. Repeat the single crochet stitch until you reach the desired length (typically 4-5 feet in length, or 48-60 inches.
  7. When you’re done, cut your yarn and pull it through the last loop and tighten. IMG_0996IMG_0997
