Single Crochet

Here are the basic symbols that you will find in the picture demonstrations of single crochet. On occasion you will find the + sign used as a single crochet symbol. The letters are the abbreviations you will find in the instructions for crochet. Learning the symbols and reading patterns are a very important part to the art of crochet.

To make the single crochet, insert your hook through the stitch, wrap the yarn over the hook, pull through, wrap the yarn over your hook, pull through two loops.

  1. I have always been confused about when to crochet under 2 loops and when to crochet under a single. I sometimes can't see the v very easily with certain patterns or yarn. Does anyone have any suggestions?

  2. I always crochet under both of the loops since I find this technique more secure. There may be times that you will crochet under the back loop or front loop only for decorative purposes. I have found that working under 1 loop may create larger holes in the work.
