How to crochet
CROCHET A CHAIN STITCH
The chain stitch is the foundation for all crochet projects. Patterns which are worked in rows will usually begin with a series of chain stitches, known as the foundation chain.
CROCHET A SINGLE CROCHET
The single crochet is the one of the small and most basic crochet stitches. Crochet "amigurumi" predominantly uses the Single Crochet as it creates a tight, dense fabric, perfect for cute animals and other creatures.
CROCHET A HALF DOUBLE CROCHET
The half double crochet is the one of the smaller crochet stitches. This stitch creates a tight, dense fabric, which work really quick and pairs perfectly with the single crochet to create beautiful textured fabric.
CROCHET A DOUBLE CROCHET
The double crochet is the one of the larger crochet stitches. The double crochet is twice the height of a single crochet, and creates a fairly dense loose fabric, perfect for scarves and bags. The double crochet works up really quick and pairs perfectly with the single and half double crochet to create beautiful textured fabric.
CROCHET A MAGIC CIRCLE
The magic circle is an must have technique for any crochet project that is worked in the round. Anywhere you see a pattern in the round start with chain three and slip stitch to form a circle, you can easily substitute with the magic circle.
