This article shows basic crochet stitches in detail. You will learn how to crochet the stitches you need to create amigurumi patterns and many other crochet projects. Each crochet stitch has a visual step-by-step lesson and a written description of each step for beginners. Basic crochet stitches will serve you in any project of your crochet work. Let’s start!
Chain stitch is crochet foundation, it is necessary to create a foundation. If you are crocheting in rows, your first row will be a series of chain stitches. It is also used as a turning or lifting chain to start a new row.
Use a hook to thread the thread through the loop (1) and pull the loop (2) until the loop is tight. Wind the thread from the back to the front hook. Pull the thread through the loop on your hook and pull the hook (3). You have finished a chain stitch now. Repeat these steps to create a foundation chain as shown in the photo below (4).
Single crochet is a stitch that is often used in amigurumi patterns. It is one of the simplest crochet stitches.
Hook the hook from the hook (1) into the second chain and wrap the thread over the hook. Thread the thread through the chainstitch (2). Now there are two loops on the hook. Wrap the thread over the hook again and pull it out of both loops on your hook at once (3). You have completed a single crochet stitch (4). To continue the row in the same way, hook the hook onto the next chain (5, 6).
A slip stitch is used to join one crochet piece to another, finish one piece, or join the bullets. However, there are other ways to use it as a surface crochet stitch or as a way to change yarn color.
Attach the hook to the next stitch (1). Wrap the thread in the hook and thread it through all the loops at once (2).
Half double crochet stitch is installed on a single crochet stitch by adding one more step. It is a great stitch used in various crochet projects.
Wrap your thread on the hook, then count the hook from the hook (1) and place it on the third chain. Wind the thread back on the hook and just thread it through the chain stitch. Now there are three loops on the hook (2). Wrap the thread over the hook and thread it through all three loops on the hook (3). You made your first half double crochet stitch. Thread, do the same half stitch once again in the next stitch (4).
Double crochet stitches combine well with other crochet stitches and there are unlimited ways to apply it.
Wrap your thread on the hook, then attach the hook from the hook to the 4th chain (1). Wrap the thread on the hook and pull the thread from the chain stitch. Now there are three loops on the hook (2). Reinsert the hook and thread it through the first two loops on the hook (2). Now there are two loops on the hook. Wrap the thread on the hook for the last time and pull it from both rings of the hook (4). You made your first double crochet stitch. Thread, make a pair of double crochet in the next stitch, following all previous steps (5).
The triple crochet is higher than the double crochet stitch, but follows the same basic steps. Indeed, after learning how to do double crochet, you can perform many different high crochet stitches. This allows you to quickly add some height to a project.
Wrap your thread in the hook twice before attaching your thread from the hook to the fifth chain (1). Wind the thread over the hook and pull the thread from the chain stitch (2). Reinsert the hook and thread it through the first two loops on the hook (2). Thread the hook over the hook and thread your thread through the next two loops on the hook (4). Thread the hook over the hook and thread your thread through the last two loops on the hook (5). Your triple crochet stitch is complete! To make the next triple stitch, wind the thread twice on the hook and repeat all previous steps (6).
When making a crochet stitch, you result in two loops on top of the stitch, a front loop (1) closer to you, and a back loop (2) that is further away from you. To crochet the front ring of a stitch, just place the hook under the front loop and make the stitch as specified in the pattern. On the other hand, when the stitches are applied to the back loops, you just place the hook under the back loop of the stitch.
Crochet increase is widely used to expand the amount of stitches in the lap. To increase, you need to do two single crochet (or other stitches based on your pattern) in the next stitch.
The invisible single crochet reduction is an alternative way of reducing, resulting in a smoother and more even crochet fabric.
Attach the hook to the front ring of your first stitch and the front ring (1) of the second stitch. Wrap the thread over the hook and thread it through the first two loops in your hook (2). Rewind the thread and pull it along the two loops remaining on the hook (3). Now you have made an invisible decline.
The traditional reduction method differs in the first step: you hook the hook through both the front and back loops of the next two stitches.
Bobble stitch, also known as a cluster stitch, adds some size and fine texture to your crochet fabric. The whole idea of bobble stitching is to partially complete the amount of double crochet stitches (usually 3, 4 or 5) specified in the pattern — all in the same stitch — and thread the thread through all the loops. Hook.
Thus, thread the hook over, then attach the hook to the next stitch (1). Thread the thread. Now there are three loops on the hook. Wrap the thread again on the hook and pull it along the first two loops on the hook. A half closed double crochet is made and two loops are left on the hook (2). Repeat the previous steps twice for the same stitch. Now you have four loops on your hook. Wrap the thread over the hook and thread it through all four loops on the hook (3). One 3 dc bobble stitch has been completed. Create a bobble stitch with as many dc stitches as your pattern requires.
It’s a great way to start working on a magic ring tour. You start crocheting over an adjustable loop, and when you stitch the specified number of times, you pull the loop tight. The advantage of this method is that there are no holes in the middle of the foundation.
Start with the cross thread to create a circle (1). Create a loop with your hook, but do not pull it tightly (2). Hold the circle with your index finger and thumb and wrap the running thread over your middle finger (3). Make a chain by wrapping the thread on the hook and pulling it off the loop on your hook (4). Now put the hook into the ring and under the tail. Wrap the thread on the hook and pull a loop (6). Wrap the thread over the hook again and thread it through both loops (7) on your hook. You have now completed your first single crochet (8). Continue crocheting the sc until you get the number of stitches you want. Now take the thread tail and pull it to close the ring hole (9, 10).
Instead of the magic ring, you can make 2 channels and also crochet the required number of stitches on the second chain from the hook.
Invisible color change is a really useful trick to add a new color and make your crochet project look perfect.
Crochet the next stitch as usual, but do not pull out the last loop (1). Instead, wrap the new thread color around your hook and pull it through the remaining loops (2). To make a smooth color change, you can use a slip stitch instead of a single crochet. Do not pull the slip stitch too tight or it will be difficult to crochet the next round.
If you are going to use some colors again in the rounds below, do not cut the thread, let it in, so as not to touch it several times in the end.
When you have completed a part of your crochet project, you need to fix and fix the thread so that the stitch is not unraveled. To do this, cut the thread, leaving a small tail. Next, thread the hook and tail through the loop on your hook (1). Remove the hook and pull the tail to tighten it. Thread the fabric with a tapestry needle to hide the tail (2) or leave a tail to stitch the pieces together.
