Blog Feature- Single Crochet Stitch Tutorial

Leona Sutton (found on instagram)  has been wonderfully kind and
offered to show me how to crochet with this easy to follow tutorial 
with step-by-step picture. Thank you so much Leona!
Crochet is dead simple to pick up and a lot easier than knitting as you can easily correct your mistakes.  One of the most important things to remember when starting out is to keep tension on the wool - not too tight or too loose!

Stage One:

Make a loop knot with the wool, making sure you have a tail.  Pull the loop through the hook and wrap the wool around the hook.

Stage Two:

Pull the first loop over the top of the second loop and repeat this until you have your chain stitch.  Once you have made the chain as long as needed, turn the chain over and insert the hook in the first chain loop.

Stage Three:

Now wrap the wool around the hook and slip one loop off the hook.  Repeat this again on the same stitch, but slip two loops off the hook, so you are left with just one loop.

Stage Four:

Keep repeating this until you come to the end of the row.  Once you have done this, turn the piece over and wrap the wool around once and slip off one loop.

Stage Five:

Then work back across the row as before.  Then just repeat, repeat and repeat!
