11 Feb Sieve Crochet Stitch
It is easy to work using only single crochet and chain stitches.
STITCHES AND TECHNIQUES USED
CHAIN (abbrev. ch)
YO and pull through the loop on hook.
To create a stitch within a chain space, just insert your hook into the space/hole/gap (underneath the chain) to make your stitch.
SINGLE CROCHET (abbrev. sc)
Insert hook in stitch, YO and pull up loop (2 loops on your hook), YO again and pull through both loops on hook.
CROCHETING INTO THE BACK BUMP OF A CHAIN
When you turn your chain, you’ll see a small ‘bump’ on the wrong side of each stitch.
