How to Crochet Over Single Crochets in RowsBy Caissa "Cami" McClinton – 17 Comments
Sometimes we can create different textures and effects by crocheting into unexpected places on our crochet fabric. This week we’ll focus upon how to crochet over single crochets in rows. For the purpose of practicing this skill, we’ll make a small swatch in this tutorial. Yarn and hook size don’t matter for this practice swatch.
You may mouse over images for left-handed views.
Row 1: ch 11, sc into second ch from hook and into each ch across: 10 sc
The photo below shows this done.
Row 2: ch 1, turn, sc in each sc across: 10 sc
Row 3: ch 1, turn, sc over each sc in the sc below: 10 sc
The photo below shows this in progress. The arrows are pointing to the place where the hook should be inserted for this stitch.
Row 4 – 5: ch 1, turn, sc in each sc across: 10 sc
Row 6: ch 1, turn, sc over each sc in the sc below: 10 sc
Repeat rows 4-6 until desired length is reached.
This is what the stitch looks like in one color.
This is what the stitch looks like in multiple colors. (I also crocheted a border around it.) Pretty fun, huh?
So what do you think? Have you ever crocheted like this before? If you have any questions or need any help, please leave a comment below! 🙂
