CROCHET STITCH GUIDE
Use our handy guide to make the crochet projects in this issue
SLIP STITCH (SS) This stitch has no height, and is often used to join rounds
Slip stitch is used to join a
01 length of chain into the round. Insert the hook from front to back into the first chain worked. Wrap the yarn around the hook (yrh), anti- clockwise.
Pull the yarn through the
02 chain stitch, then the loop already on the hook, to make a slip stitch. You can also work this into each stitch along a row to form a neat edging.
WORKING IN ROWS Follow these simple rules to construct crochet fabric
The first row is made by
01 working across the foundation chain from right to left. At the end of the chain or row, turn the work so the yarn coming from the ball is behind the hook.
For the next row, first make
02 the turning chain for the stitch you’re about to work. Then, work the next stitch into the top of the stitches on your first row, missing the first stitch.
