How to Crochet on the Side of a Single CrochetBy Candace – 5 Comments
Most crochet stitches are worked into the loops in the top of the stitch, whether it’s both loops or one of them. However, every once in a while, you may come across a pattern that requires you to work into the side of a stitch. In the case of the single crochet, the stitch is worked into a vertical bar as shown below. If you are right-handed, the bar will be on your left, and if you are left-handed, the bar will be on your right.
For a left-handed view, hover over the pictures.
So when you work into the side of the stitch, you simply insert your hook under the bar and complete the stitch. Here, it’s demonstrated with an hdc.
Yarn over, insert hook under bar.
Yarn over, pull up a loop.
Yarn over, pull through all loops.
And there you have it. If you need any further help, feel free to leave a comment.
