First Crochet stitches – left & right handed


Here are some handy step by step diagrams of how to complete your first crochet stitches. Before you start you’ll need a slip knot and to have decided on how to hold your hook and yarn. There is a left and right handed version and they show in detail how to make a chain, complete a row of double crochet stitches (single crochet stitches in American terms) then make a turning chain and start working back along the first row.
