Full Answer

Crochet is the process of using a needle to create a piece of cloth. There are a number of crochet patterns but beginners tend to start with the single crochet, which is basically a chain of loops, or stitches.

A half double crochet requires a single crochet chain, which is called the foundation chain. The process of creating a half double crochet involves pulling three loops onto the hook to create one stitch. The process is repeated down the length of the foundation chain and then in additional rows until the fabric is to the desired length.

    How do you do a crochet stitch?

    A:

    In order to do a simple crochet stitch, make a slip knot about 6 inches away from the ball of yarn, then tighten the knot around the crochet hook and grab more of the yarn with the hook before pulling it through the original knot, making a second slip knot within the first one.
