How to Crochet Tutorial # 2, Single Crochet

(This is a video, to watch click on the play symbol)

If you haven't watched the first video please do. This video is on how to do a single crochet (in patterns it will be abbreviated to sc). First you will make a beginning chain, just like in the first video, as long as you want (I recommend at least 15 chain). Then you insert the hook in the second ch from the hook, yarn over, pull up a loop, yarn over and go through both loops on the hook- this is a single crochet. Do this to the end of each row - end, meaning very last stitch - then ch 1 and turn to begin the next row. WOW! I never realized how hard it is to crochet that slow, with a tripod and camera between your legs and arms! Did I mention that I couldn't see what I was doing because the camera was in the way? I had to look through the screen on the camera. It was a bit challenging, so I am sorry if it's a little rocky at times! Oh, and you may want to turn your volume down because my phone started ringing towards the end. LOL!

Please let me know if you find this video useful.

Holy cow, I cannot believe that you just taught me how to crochet! That's amazing! I followed along (thank goodness for the pause button), and I have a teeny scrap of crocheted goodness now!

Thanks so much, this is wonderful!!! I really appreciate it!

I'm wondering how advanced I have to be to make one of your crocheted flower patterns. I've made two scarves off of your tutorias and now I need something new but I'm still learning.
