Single Stitch. To practise single crochet, make a chain about 12 inches long put the hook into the upper half-loop of the second chain throw the wool over the point and draw it through this half-loop and through the loop which is already on the hook. Proceed in this way to the end of the chain work one chain turn and work back again, taking care to put the hook into the upper half of the stitch of the previous row. Thus the first stitch of each succeeding row is always worked into the back of the last stitch of the preceding row. ;
