- Some worsted weight yarn (you can use a nice cotton yarn and make a washcloth or an inexpensive yarn to start and make anything you want!)
- A size G crochet hook
- Yarn needle
Now you are going to start working back through the chains you just made.
Slip your hook through the second stitch from hook. Snag the yarn and pull through the stitch.
You should now have 2 strands on your hook. Snag the yarn again and pull it through these two strands. You just did it. You made a single crochet stitch!
When you have made your last sc make another chain stitch and turn.
Now these stitches will look different from your chain row. Instead of slipping through one strand of yarn you are going to slip your hook through two stitches that reside on the top of your sc row. They look kind of like a little “v.”
Slip your hook under the first little “v” next to your hook. Snag the live yarn, pull through. You know have two stitches on your hook. Snag the yarn again and pull through two loops.
With hook still in your live stitch, snag the yarn you just cut and pull it all the way through the loop, making a knot.
Take new tail and thread onto yarn needle. Weave needle through a few of the last stitches made and pull through. Cut excess yarn.
Voila! A single crochet square. Imagine the possibilities! How about that baby blanket? Make some more (try different colors!) and sew them together.
