Single crochet stitch


The blankets had all been made using a double-crochet stitch, which was perfect for large pieces, and would work well for a proper shawl once I came to make one, but I didn’t feel it would be best for the hats and scarves that sat next on my list of things to make. I needed an even tighter stitch. Like a single-crochet stitch.

I’d started with a double stitch, because that’s what my sister had taught me, but she’d showed me a single stitch too. My fingers needed reprogramming – that was hard! – but I got the hang of it, and without the tension problem, made swift progress. The kids fell in love with the first scarf before I’d even finished it, and quickly commandeered that first sample for themselves…
