Extended Single Crochet Tutorial

In a recent Annie’s Club Kit, it was required that the pattern I work use an extended single crochet. One, I must admit I have not worked in a while and I was excited to get reacquainted with it.

The extended single crochet is almost the same height as the double crochet, but not quite the same.

If you have already mastered the basic single crochet, then the extended single crochet will be an easy one to learn. it is very similar with only a little variation.

If you are ready, then lets get some yarn and hook and begin
this comparison of stitches.

Step 1: Insert your hook and pull up the desired stitch (It starts out just like a basic single crochet) (pictured above)

Step 2: YO and pull up a loop (two loops on hook) (pictured above)

Step 3: YO and pull through one loop (this is what differentiates the basic from the extended single crochet) (pictured above)

Note: To have consistent stitches make sure that the loop that you pull up is the same size as your shaft of your hook. (pictured above)

Step 4: YO and pull through both loops. (pictured above)
You have just completed your first single crochet! How do you like it? Would love to hear what your think.

Until next time, keep those hooks flying.


About crochetwithpassion

I have been certified through the Craft Yarn Council both in teaching and Instructor. I also have been teaching people to crochet for over fifteen years. This is what I will be doing through this blog. In the Crochet Master Class there are 18 projects. Some of the projects will be familiar to me such as Hairpin Lace; Tunisian Crochet; Filet Crochet; Double Ended Crochet; painted Crochet; Aran Crochet and Irish Crochet. However there are several in the book that are new and have peaked my interest and that includes the following: Woven Crochet; Tapestry Crochet; Entrelac Crochet; Fashion Crochet; Tassels; Bullion Stitch; Overlay Crochet; Bead Crochet; Bruges Crochet; Free-form crochet and Wire Crochet. Since Crocheting is a time consuming craft I will only be posting once a week. If you are like me and love to crochet but would really like to challenge yourself to go beyond what you are now doing, come along with me and move to the next level. Although the actual patterns will not be posted (copyright law) I will take you through each project and go through the process of each one. This is not a blog about free crochet patterns or selling crochet tools. What I would like to do is take you with me on the journey through this book as I learn and crochet each of 18 projects. I will attempt to crochet each project in the book, and in the process recording in detail my progress and the problems I encounter along the way and the process I went through to accomplish each project. I am hoping that you will not only learn from my experience but that it will inspire you to push yourself to the next phase in your crocheting skills. Until next time; keep those hooks flying.
